My First Post

I am very excited to be making my first blog post since I have wanted to start a blog for many years. Since I’m not sure if you can see my “about me” section yet, my name is Sarah and I am a wife and mother of four kids. I am planning to share my mental health journey through depression as a mom. As I write today, I am tapering off all of my psychiatric medications after seven years, and hopefully easing my way out of the mental health system and onto a new path. The journey to today has not been an easy one, and I will be sharing the events that led to this and how I fare as I try to leave traditional mental health treatment behind. I am hoping to find that the reason I went through all of these difficult, life changing events was to help you, my readers, get through something difficult too. So, I hope you will stick with me as I get the hang of this blogging thing!

My name is Sarah Strong and I am a wife, mom of four kids, and wanna be mental health advocate. The goal of this blog is for me to document my journey as a mom with a history of depression. I hope to share my experiences with the mental health system, what has helped and what hasn’t, and to keep readers up to date on my mental health as I go off antidepressants for the first time in seven years. Thanks for reading!
