Mental Health Awareness Month

May is such a busy month for us. I swear it's worse than December!

It is also Mental Health Awareness month and each day I am sharing a resource or tool I use to help ease my own mental challenges and PTSD symptoms. Follow me on Facebook and Instagram to get those updates! I have been getting great questions and feedback from my followers and it has been a fun way to connect with other people who are living with PTSD too.

The piece I wrote for Maria Shriver's website went live last week - it is a reflection about my family's trip back to the Boston Marathon this year. My husband, Jeff, was able to run and finish this year! Here is a link to the article Together Moving Forward .

I was also recently recognized by Chandler Lifestyle magazine as one of their 2018 Real Women of Chandler.  What an honor!! First, to be recognized for the work I do in my own own community. Second, to stand among such wonderfully talented and caring ladies. Here is the link to the article The 2018 Real Women of Chandler .

Last May I let the crazy business take me over and I forgot to take care of me. I was also beginning to wean off klonopin and suffered horrible withdrawals.  I am happy I remember these things now as I prepare myself for another busy May. I have made a commitment to take care of myself and have started using some new tools that I'll be sharing on my social media.
