Continuing on from episode 1, we are diving in further about my life post Texas State. It was hard for me to accept that one of my own parents did not understand what had happened to me from a medical standpoint. Depression and anxiety are real and can affect anyone at any point in their life! The effects it can have on you vary and it is draining. It is hard when you do not have anyone around you to go to, and you feel all alone.
Fast forward and I am living in College Station. I found my husband here at Blinn college where I had to take a detour before arriving at Texas A&M. Everything seemed to be going great until it was not. Things were falling apart and yet again I felt alone because my partner, the person who was supposed to support me through everything, was not doing that. Instead I was tore down and criticized and it was hard to keep going every day. I tried to push past it though and remain happy.
I started an Etsy shop to take my mind off of it and occupy myself but that only helped for so long. Through this hard spring, my best friend Blake helped me and was there for me every step of the way. I brought him on this episode to answer a couple questions and I am so thankful for him so I hope you guys enjoy!
