This is my life. It has been one crazy, rocky, and often unstable road. The experiences I write about are honest, raw and unapologetic.

If you know someone living with the struggles of mental illness or addiction, please share this website with them. I would like to see people taking care of their minds, and it be as routine as going to the dentist.
