I have wrestled for months(years?) with the idea of a blog where I could share my journey with depression/anxiety/compassion fatigue. A place for stories, sharing of ideas, etc.

As a pediatric nurse, mother of three and someone who generally just seems to feel the pain of the world, this struggle has been lifelong for me. I have found some things that help me and some things that don't.

We are all individuals and I do not imagine that everything that has helped me would help everyone. It would be outrageous to think so! So take what you need, Dear Ones, and discard the rest.

Feel free to comment and share your journey with me. I cannot think of anything that would bring me more joy.

Warning: I love to swear, especially  the f-word(what a versatile word it is!!). So, I may drop them here and there and that may turn some people off. It's more than okay if this page isn't for you-I hope you find somewhere that you feel more at home.

Well, what are we waiting for? The journey begins now!

Shine on, Dear Ones, shine on.
