“A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.”

A Problem Cannot Be Solved Without Understanding It.
People oftentimes fear what they don’t understand.

Mental Health struggles have three possible activators:   

A Hereditary Predisposition.
A Shock With Sudden Emotional Stress.
A Mindset, Method, Assumption or Personal Philosophy.

All of these can leave a person with counterfeit thinking. 

And the unwanted Stigma  ​​ isn't helpful.  ​​

Repurpose and Find Freedom

Kristy courageously shares her mother's journey into Schizophrenia  and writes a tribute to her mother, as an aid in removing the stigma surrounding Mental Health struggles .

Kristy links her own story of overcoming psychological trauma, developed through her dad, as she shares mother and daughter's narratives. 

Her childhood was damaged by lies, secrets, and scandal. These were the predecessor to Kristy's ​ Complex Post-traumatic Stress Disorder C-PTSD

Trauma Happens
Heartache Within Religious Organizations
Kristy was negatively judged through her mother's Mental Health struggle. 

She found herself in a " Church Hurt", which left her broken by the very place which should have shown  Grace.  

Instead, she was victimized once again, and her mother had passed away over thirty-five-years eariler. ​

Kristy doesn't believe the traumatic recessed memories , from her damaging childhood, should have reemerged through the unkindness and false blame displayed within her former Religious Community.
