Connecting with other parents who have been through challenges like mine has been so nice. I thought I was the only one and would hold back from sharing my experience. I felt protective of how story. Getting to share has really helped us heal. I have learned so much from others and am grateful to be able to be part of a parenting community like this. Many times I felt overwhelmed and hopeless, but connecting to others around my families mental health issues has really helped. It made a really hard journey, a little bit easier. still difficult, but no so lonely.
