Why a blog?
I guess I wanted to start with why I decided to start a blog. Dealing with mental illness is hard especially when it involves a loved one. As a mother you want to take it all away. Sometimes you feel all alone even when you are not. Friends and family are great support, but unless you walk in our shoes(live in our home) you do not truly understand. My husband says I could use therapy, but we need to save all of our funds for McKenzie and her help. So after finding another mother's blog on the web and discovering how much it helped me, I thought I should write one too. My hope is that it will help others who are struggling with mental illness in their family. And just maybe it will help me too.
