Nice to meet you!

I'm ADHD, have autistic traits, dealt with trauma, been suicidal, don't fit into gender mold, I'm a wife and mother, worked with youth, veterans, professionals, homeless, and love people from all walks of life. Having faced depression and anxiety I can related to what you are going through.
In my own life I've dealt with depression, anxiety, anger, relationship issues, insomnia, stress, loss, bullying, and even suicidal ideation, and while I'm not perfect, I'm on the other side to tell you there is hope for recovery!
