Yesterday was THE day. We Climbed Out of the Darkness. It was challenging, it was HOT and I honestly had a few fleeting thoughts of turning back before reaching the top. It’s amazing how similar climbing Stone Mountain was to climbing out of depression. When I was reminded of the correlation, I could NOT… would NOT give up. I naturally thought of Miley Cyrus’ song, We Can’t Stop. lol
…And we can’t stop
And we won’t stop
We run things, things don’t run we
Don’t take nothing from nobody
On a serious note…I thought of each of you, and all of the support I received: prayers, donations, and kind words. For those of you who were there to physically climb with me, thank you for your encouragement!
See, this is what it takes to help moms that are in the midst of suffering from perinatal mood disorders: community, support, encouragement. THANK YOU, for rallying around me in such an amazing way. I am floored. I will pay it forward!
A special thanks to my sweet husband and my mommy. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me through ALL of this. I love y’all
P.S. I raised the most for team Atlanta. As my mom would say “this is HUGE!”. I could not have done it without YOU!
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
