Expedition 18: Gratitude Compassion, Kindness & Friendship

Expedition 18: Gratitude Compassion, Kindness & Friendship

There is no way for me to express the torment I feel inside. I try to explain my anguish over and over only to be met with more questions. These questions from complete strangers confuse me, trigger my deepest emotions, leave me vulnerable, uncomfortable and exposed. This is nothing new since this has been my reality for almost two years. I feel like few people understand. Others are busy hiding from their own struggles. While many simply don't care! Those who are aware of the social justice issues surrounding mental health treatment, fewer than I can count on one hand have...

Expedition 17-Free Spirits

Expedition 17-Free Spirits

Last year on May 19, 2017 my husband whisked me away to a cabin in the woods. Although, our 19th wedding anniversary was on May 30th we needed the time away as soon as possible. Life at that time was spiraling out of control for me. All the things I thought I was handling I realized I was simply avoiding. It was that weekend that I truly began to realize I no longer needed to hide my pain. Knowing that no matter how bad it got he would be there to support me. That weekend I took off the mask,...

I recall thinking then that this leave would only be a few weeks. But as the months went on, I learned that the distrust in humanity & my fears post-accident were far more serious than what I’d originally thought....

Although I’ve faced some pretty tough obstacles in my treatment to date the biggest one was brought to my attention recently by my husband. I spoke with my driver rehab therapist about it and he agreed that this was an area which would be helpful in managing my recovery. What is it you ask? Managing Expectations… This journey has opened my eyes to whom I am able to rely upon when things in my life aren’t going well. So here comes the guilt…I realize I have a great job, great husband, daughter and in general life (minus my current mental...

Expedition 15: Memories-Christmas Eve

Expedition 15: Memories-Christmas Eve

The seasons change year after year, we evolve as people, our families grow and shrink but one thing always remains MEMORIES. Many of them lessons learned throughout the year others ones we fondly recall which remind us of simpler times. It has been a fair amount of time since I felt the presence of my Grandmother around me I used to feel her often. For some reason today she came to me but not before dropping a bunch of hints. There was the dime I found seconds after clearing my kitchen table yesterday, the photographs my Aunt posted on Facebook...
