I’m a married mom of four amazing children.  I was diagnosed with depression in 2004 after my second child was born.  Looking back, I should have been diagnosed in my teens or early twenties.  Never did I think that I would be taking a journey through the obstacles of mental illness with two (for now) of my children.

This blog is about our journey.  Done with the blessing of my oldest (because she is a teenager and I felt it was needed).  Our journey has had tears, arguments, laughter and plenty of sarcasm!  Part of this is cathartic for me, but also being written in the hopes to help others navigate this world and to know that you are not alone.
