My Platform, My Soapbox

This is my platform, my sounding board if you will.  Here you will see the ins and outs of life as a single parent dealing with more than what she thought was in store.  I welcome any thoughts, feelings, comradery, discussion and of it but please do remember…..this is my page to say what I want and how I feel.  I know some will read this and believe it pertains to them, it just might!!  It could also be a validation for someone going through what I’m going through.

This is intended for me to have a way of venting without annoying my amazing friends and also it’s good for me mentally.  Like a lot of people out there I suffer from depression and anxiety.  I thought that I had actually had it under control but alas, I was seriously wrong.  After a very bad episode that basically cost me a really great friendship, I decided that I needed to go back to writing.  This blog is for me.  It’s for my daughter who is too young to understand what mommy is going through.  It is  for you to understand me a little better because I have learned that I can convey what I truly want in unspoken words.  I can write what I need, how I feel and what I want the outcome to be rather than try and talk because I get caught up, I get tangled and when that happens my anxiety kicks in and then I become a clustered mess.  Trust me, not fun and so not pretty!!!

I have talked with my best friend a lot about wanting to blog again and to also be able to maybe help anyone that may need it.  I know what it’s like to feel alone, misunderstood, unsupported and possibly overwhiney…LOL  You’ve been there, we’ve all been there at least once or more!  I want to be able to possibly reach out to anyone that may need a support, whether it is near or far, and try to offer any type of help that I can.  You don’t nee need to be long-time friends, but in need and that is what I would like to do.  Help those in need with my musings, thoughts and experiences.

I want to thank you for taking the time to read my words and if they have helped, it warms my heart.  If it helps you understand those who are what you would think to be misguided or chaotic, that is a huge help for them.
