May is mental health awareness month. I plan to use this month to primarily focus on my personal journey. I have openly talked about my diagnosis for a while now, but I am going to go a little more in depth. As mentioned in my previous blog post (Where have I been lately? ), I am planning to talk about things other than mama stuff because that is not my whole identity. Before babies I was Breyona and after babies I still am Breyona. So let’s get started with this month’s series! I am calling this series in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month: The Phoenix Series. If you aren’t familiar with the Phoenix, it symbolizes renewal and strength. The renewal aspect of this series is the acceptance of the condition(s) and the treatment journey. The Strength aspect of this series is being able to openly share my story, move forward, as well as share other mama’s stories with other moms and women who may feel alone or unsure of their mental state… judgment free. If you are going to be judgemental by all means you should click the X in the corner of the page. You may need a tissue or two just a heads up.
There will be frequent posting on my blog and social media. I am excited about this series and I look forward to sharing with yall.
