For My Friends

There will be many of you who know me now that will find it hard to believe that this chapter of my life occurred. 

I have weighed the costs and benefits of telling my story. I could....

let people believe that I do and always have had it together


shed light on my personal battle with depression in the hopes of helping others.

While both would satisfy inner desires, it didn't take long to settle on which one was more worthy. 

You may find some aspects of my story heart-wrenching and disturbing. Please know these experiences and overcoming them played a major role in shaping me into the person you know me to be today. I hope knowing these things about me can lead to a more meaningful relationship. Heaven knows you've fought your own battles.

You may be interested in understanding depression better. Clearly, I am not afraid to talk about it. :) If you ever have questions, please don't be afraid to ask.
