My name is Erin and this is my personal blog which has two intentions. One, to help me through my journey of living with depression and anxiety (for 5 years so far). The second, to hopefully help others who are battling the same or similar diseases. I truly hope that someone may benefit from my struggles, and that the stigma around Mental Health can fall to the wayside.
This is a place of sharing and no judgements. You will find raw personal events, exposed emotions, my personal outlook, what has and what hasn’t worked (for me), and I will share any resources/links that I come across.
Some information about who I am? Well, I’m sure we’ll be “nice and cozy with one another” as this chapter in my journey unfolds. But, here’s a little something to appease you: I am a 37-year old female, been married to my husband for over 7 years, have a beautiful 5-year old girl and I live and work in Orange County, California.
I believe that people should be honest and do the right thing (not things for selfish reasons). I am a very passionate person…otherwise known as opinionated! But, I’m also very sarcastic/quick witted.
Legality of it all…
