Motherhood, mental illness and beyond


I’m a mother in my 30s. In addition to poor physical health (degenerative disc disease) I am mentally ill. I am not going to hide this fact – mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of and I refuse to hide who and what I am. I hope that by sharing my thoughts and experiences I can help others, whatever the topic.

If you’re a glutton for punishment interested in more of my ramblings you can find me on Twitter at @SamCandour.

    As long as you aren’t a grape fruit loop, you are good in my book, besides…if we were all normal this world would be an awfully boring place:)
