Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. My health journey began in 2020. I thought it would be short and I would be back to normal quickly but God has other plans. I would not have chosen this path but seeing God work in my life ....I wouldn't change it. He is always there ..whether we chose to see him or not and if my story can help someone else then Praise God! I am starting a journal now since it is so easy to forget all those details. Summer of 2020 I struggled with anxiety attacks , insomnia, depression, brain fog , I lost nearly all my hair and I would wake 5- 6 times per night , (wide awake, shaking with heart palpitations) . I was also gaining weight and would bruise from any slight bump. My mental health kept declining till fall I was struggling with suicidal thoughts almost daily. I could barely leave the house because brainfog was so bad and holding a conversation with people was so hard. I knew I should get help but it was so hard to admit that something was wrong. Especially since I felt like I had it so good! A loving husband and two precious children. Looking back I don't know how it would have ended if God hadn't intervened....
