Scenes: Why I want to Bring This is My Brave to my City

Today I shared my first blog post over on the This is My Brave blog.

 

This is My Brave

 

I function “normally” on a day-to-day basis, but there are moments when life can come crashing down. On those days I may not be able to get out of bed, I snap at my husband and children and I feel like I’m drowning.

I hate those days.

What I hated most was hiding.

  1. Hi, Brook. I know it’s been awhile, but I still check in with your blog from time to time. I’m sure you already know this, but what you are doing is so big for the world of mental illness. I am a former crisis counselor and I’ve dealt with people of all diagnoses. Very few of them have the insight or the words to explain their feelings and reactions in a way that other people can understand with compassion. It’s so important that those of us with those words speak up for those who cannot. I also come from a long family history of mental illness, and I myself battle debilitating anxiety. As much as I agree with the need to speak out, I rarely do so myself because I fear the vulnerability. Thank you for doing this, for being part of a much-needed voice, and for inspiring me to accept the responsibility of being more open about this issue so others can understand.

    1. It has been a while. I’m glad you checked in and said “hi” I’m a lurker on yours too. Thanks so much for your kind words. While it’s been scary to talk about it’s also been so liberating. The anxiety from hiding my problem was making everything so much worse. Once I came out so to speak, life became more about healing than hiding.
