Being a wife does not come naturally for me; my first instinct is to run as fast as I can in the other direction. Being a mother does not come so naturally either. Perhaps this is why I am publishing my story: to process and learn from my error, as well as share the beauty of this imperfect family as we continually work to transform our weakness into strength and love. In my journey to create a blog I care deeply about, I have realized that it is time to honestly publish my trials as a Christian, and a mental health therapist managing a complex PTSD diagnosis. This blog is not to share my past, but to share my healing.
I pray you both enjoy my story and draw knowledge from my life, as I so openly share my healing. If you too live with PTSD, or have another mental illness, I pray this blog would encourage you to be honest with others. My goal in this blog is to diffuse the shame people often carry with mental illness, and provide comfort for those with mental illness so they know that they are not alone.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or would like to share your story.
