When Suicide Became An Option

First I would like to give a shout out to Ms. Harris at Paris High School, in Paris, Missouri for coming through with my feature picture that I accidentally erased from my phone.

Second, September 2016 was also Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.  Please reach out to those you love and always be kind.  People fight demons everyday.  Pray for them and if you do nothing else, at least smile.

Be Strong, Be You



Mustering Up the Strength to Tell My Mom

As long as I post weekly, it is progress to me. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers.  Thank you again to my friend, Vickie (Also in the picture), for the throwback pic! Remember to be kind, always.  You never know what someone else is going through behind their smile.

Happy Birthday Vickie and Rachelle!

Be Strong, Be You



Why Didn’t I Tell My Mom?

I am EXTREMELY late posting this.  Thank you all for your patience.  I find it harder to talk about this as times goes on and as long as I am busy with work, I use work as the excuse.  Lately, I find myself falling back into a darkness because I was becoming very overwhelmed with present life.  Typically, me being overwhelmed means going back to these moments or any moment before today and beating myself up on what if I would have been strong enough to make the decisions that wouldn’t have constantly sent my life deeper and deeper into the downward spiral.  In spite of, I am here, I am alive and I am hopeful that this continues to be therapeutic for me and an inspiration to you.

Again, I appreciate the outpour of support from fellow Alopecians and supporters!

Be Strong, Be You


Mental/Physical Contamination

I expect/hope my post will become more frequent.  It is something about my mind that simply does not stop thinking as I tell my testimony. Although once a week is difficult to achieve, there are times something will pop in my head and I have to jot down notes or just want to have a whole conversation.  I will work on stopping in the moment and sharing those thoughts/feelings.
