Good morning.  I know it has been awhile since I have written a post,  but some positive things have been happening. God has really been working in my life if you knew me six months ago you would be surprised at the changes I have made. I’m not saying I am perfect but I am definitely changed for the better.

One of the changes that has been made in my life is constantly being exposed to God’s word on a daily basis. About 2 months ago I joined a group called to take part in a free bible study on Ruth. I must admit I had no expectations on doing this study, but God’s plan was different not only did I finish the study but I am not an accountability coach leading a group of ladies through a study.  Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that little old depressed,  anxious,   broken,  damaged, and lost me would have been here. I mean six months ago  getting out of bed without crying was a chore, but here I am up at 544 am ready to spend time with God and hopefully bless someone with my story and my struggles.
I pray that this helps someone and I hope you will check out and join us as we study 1 John.

Till next time

30 MIAC Day 16

Day 16: How many people are you “out” to with your mental illness(es)? Why

I have shared my diagnosis with the majority of my family and the people I work with. At first I was ashamed of my diagnosis, now I feel that by sharing my diagnosis and talking to others about my experience I could possibly help someone who is going through the same thing.


It’s only 10:30 and it’s already been a hectic day. At 4:00 am I woke up to a power outage that effected our whole neighborhood, which was not a good thing for my anxiety. Then, I had to move mountains to get my son to do his school work, and I still have a million others things to do. I refused to let my anxiety and depression ruin my day. So, I will talk a few deep breaths, say a prayer, and get a move on it!
