How It Got Started

The Roots

Hello.  I was born with a perfect storm of mental health.  I was genetically predisposed to mental health.  Both parents were verbally abused and sometimes physically.  They passed on their mental problems to me.  The divorce at age three along with their critical and watch your back nature didn't help.  Also, had a drunken stepdad work me over also.

This led to diagnosis of General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Post Traumatic Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Depression.  

I wanted to help others cope with this stuff.  That is why I wrote this book. look to speak about it in the Washington DC area,  and am writing this blog.
