This is my personal story about dealing with depression, lifelong PTSD and trying to not commit suicide on a daily basis. I want to help anyone suffering from depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or suicide and friends or family trying to help their loved ones that suffer.
A little bit about myself includes in 2016 I obtained my master’s in psychology with a focus on behavioral health. I do not practice as a therapist or counsellor because soon after obtaining my degree I developed a degenerative brain disorder that continues to wreak havoc in my life. Going further back, I have extensive musical training, spent 8 years in the Army, and have had a myriad of jobs over the years from waitress and Realtor to Microsoft tech support, software quality at Hewlett Packard and owning my own company.
My most recent employment includes working as a caregiver and group home manager for intellectually and developmentally disabled adults, as well as a driver for a company that provides transportation for special needs children.
