With the holidays, a first birthday party, and, well, life in general, I have been on a blogging hiatus... One in which I have begun rethinking my blog and its direction. 

I have blogged before about depression and anxiety in my life, and, since it really is a huge factor in my life I have decided to blog about it more.  Because 1 in 4 women in this country suffer from depression and because writing has always been an outlet for me, I want to delve deeper into my life with depression. 

Though it is hard, and quite frankly, scary, I really want to be open and honest about how depression and anxiety have affected all aspects my life and relationships.  I feel that there are so many people out there who are going through the same things.  I know how lonely it can be.  And, I hope that somehow, someway, I can use my experiences with it to help others.

I am by no means a medical expert on the topics of depression and anxiety, but I am an expert on my own personal experiences.  These experiences... the good, the bad, and the indifferent... have changed me, for better or for worse.  Hopefully, by sharing these with you, it will not only help you understand what you or a loved one is experiencing; but will also help me work through some of my own personal demons. 

So, as a new year approaches, I will begin this journey... a journey that is sure to be a rollercoaster.  Hop on and check back often if you're brave enough for what's sure to be a tumultuous ride!
