Hi and welcome to In Search of Sarahtonin!
I’m a 30 plus year old woman and mother who has a history of depression, anxiety and low self-esteem going back at least twenty years. I’ve been dreaming of blogging about my mental health journey for years and so here I am in 2020 finally taking the plunge. I’ll be sharing THE thoughts and experiences which tend to affect me on a day-to-day basis, and the tools that help me to fight against it and (try to) be strong.
I’m hoping this blog not only helps me by writing down my thoughts and feelings but can also raise awareness of this sometimes crippling disease to friends, family, and strangers online in order to increase the understanding of mental health conditions. It’s so hard to be completely honest about how you feel for fear of being scrutinized, judged, pitied, and/or ridiculed but this is where I am going to lay it all bare.
Please come and join me on my/our journey together where we shall share, motivate, laugh and, let’s be honest, sometimes cry together. Feel free to get in contact with me, leave feedback or a comment and if you think my blog post may help someone then please share my link.
Remember I am not an expert and this is not professional advice, but I do have years of experience to draw on. I really hope you can find some comfort, positivity and relief here. Please enjoy my blog.
