I am participating in a blogging workshop and this is post one. I am running behind a couple of days due to being without a smart phone……and two tornadoes (kids) who follow me around 24/7.
My name is Brittany. I am a 27 year old mother of two and wife to a husband who I consider my third child. We live a life revolved around agriculture. I have been diagnosed with bipolar depression. I am not afraid to share my mental illness with others, even though it often times gets in the way with everyday life. Over the last few years I have lost complete track of who I am as a person. My purpose. My likes and hobbies. Just who I am in general.
I started this blog as a vent for my everyday struggles and blessings. I have always been able to explain things better on paper than I could verbally. Some nights I feel as though I am hiding behind a computer screen, but I am putting it out there in one form another, so that counts for something right?
With this blog I hope to give hope to others dealing with mental illness. I hope to meet other farm wives who go through the daily struggle of sometimes raising your children on your own. I hope to connect with mothers on a level that only someone who has children understands. Most of all, in all of these words I type I hope to find myself again. Give myself some enjoyment. Throw the emptiness out the door, and become me again. If that takes sharing that journey with the world….then so be it.
