I’ve been focused on advocacy for children’s mental health, but felt it was so important to share a glimpse of my own journey with mental illness.
For those who know me personally, it’s no secret that I have anxiety. I talk openly about it and share my struggles so that hopefully others won’t feel alone.
I share my struggles because I want both of my children to see firsthand that perseverance, bravery, courage, defeat and resiliency all have a place in our lives. I want them to see that it’s ok not be ok and it’s ok to pause and find your breath.
I hope this latest blog post I wrote for Nanny Robina will be relatable to other adults who are struggling with mental illness or supporting a family member or friend through their journey.
