SignatureMy husband and I are 51 years young, married for 26 years now. 2 children - Daughter is 25 and our son is 24. Parent also to two bratty chihuahuas, love our whole, crazy family so much. ❤️
Me? I started out very young with depression. Back in the day mental disorders were not as clearly understood as they are now. My Mom always asked me...why are you so mad all the time Michelle? I had no answer why, just knew that I was. My depression became friends with anxiety and oh did these two take over my life! Still suffering from both today but through age have learned how to better handle myself. Only medication that works for me is Xanax and I only take the lowest dose as needed.
My husband has ADHD but not much is known of his medical history as he was adopted. He refuses to get any insight into what's going on with himself, hates the use of medications and is currently going to college to be a psychiatrist. He wants to work with families and as a marriage counselor.
My parents, sister, grandmother, brother all have/had depression and anxiety manic episodes. Am sure there is more that I don't know of. Long, long history of mental issues passed down to my children.
My daughter is bi polar, sweet as can be one minute, hateful and nasty the next, depressed most of the time, has a very bad image of self. Recently she spent two weeks in jail and had to come back home and live with us. Part of her probation was to see a psychiatrist was put on lithium was a dramatic change! Since loosing her job she refuses to take any and all medications and is hearing voices yet again.
Very grateful for this site and all of you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤
