THERE IS POWER IN SHARING OUR STORIES.

Through sharing my own story of the struggles I face with mental health, trauma, recovering from addiction and an eating disorder I have been able to find true healing. By talking about these parts of my life with others I have been able to help them find healing as well.  Now others are sharing their stories as well. By sharing our stories we are able to work towards ending the shame and stigma that surrounds mental health by showing that there are real people behind these struggles.

Take a look at some of our Misbehaving Minds stories and maybe even share your own.

Strangely enough, Kraft Dinner and hot dogs have played a big role in my life. In fact, this meal marked the moment I turned from victim to survivor in my own story. This meal made me so sick to even think about for a long time but it would be over a decade before I would understand why. This is my story.

KRAFT DINNER AND HOT DOGS - MY STORY

For the longest time, I assumed my weight and my worth went hand in hand. I truly believed that in some way the number on the scale determined the type of person I was. The smaller the body the more worthy I was. More worthy of love, laughter, friendship and even being a good mom.

EXTRAS

I’m a front-line support worker, mom of two, wife, self-love seeker, life-long learner, mentor, mental health advocate and occasional art maker. I have worked in the field of mental health for over a decade. But, I have spent even longer going through my own struggles with mental health, self-love, addiction, and everything in between. 

I write because I want others to not feel so alone. I hope that by telling my story others will be able to relate and realize that things can and do get better. That a better life is possible. But also, so that others know they are not the only one’s going through some really hard things. 

I create because it’s my favorite form of therapy. It’s a creative outlet that gets my through some of the most difficult times. Sometimes, it’s my little escape from reality. My creations also serve as my way of spreading a message of hope, perseverance, and the strength that exists within us all.
