I’m a mom of three amazing kids. My sons are 23 and 18. My daughter is 15. I have been married to my husband for almost 18 years now. I guess I will say he is amazing too. We live in central Wisconsin on a small homestead in the country. We raise sheep, rabbits, chickens, couple of opinionated geese and a lonely duck. We moved here just over two years ago and I feel I am just finally making our new house a home.
I have been suffering from a major bout of depression this year. I credit finally deciding to take the time to teach my self to draw and paint in helping me get out of it. I am hoping this creative blog will help me keep on track.
I am proud of what I have done and I want to help others know that there is always a way out of depression. When I was at my lowest, I was ready to give up. My family kept me here and it was a struggle, sometimes by the minute to keep fighting. It’s still a struggle. There are days I wear a mask so no one worries about me.
Art has really helped me see pass my depression. I get excited planning what I am going to try today. What new thing I will learn today. I have started to live my life again.
I want those suffering from depression that there is a way out of depression , even when it seems hopeless. There is help out there. Never give up. You are special and worth it.
