In 2006 I experienced the first of many mental breakdowns as I began my descent into my own personal rabbit hole. Up until this point, I was a highly functioning mother, employee, and friend. I worked full time and had two very busy children. I was in a long term relationship that on the outside may have appeared to be normal but behind closed doors was abusive and destructive.
Several years later we fast forward to where I am today – in a loving marriage with a kind and compassionate man, caring for one confused teenaged girl and still working through my recovery.
I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and continue with treatment with medications and ongoing psychotherapy. It’s not an easy journey and there have been setbacks and celebrations.
I ask that if you have something positive or constructive to say, please leave me a comment. I’m just one broken soul putting myself back together. I’m an advocate for those who can’t advocate for themselves and I believe that talking about my mental illness will raise awareness and remove stigma.
