Mental Illness and a Pandemic

This is my story, worrying about my young adult daugther who is battling a mental illness out there in the world during COVID-19. She refuses the help we are offering her and with her host of diagnoses there is no telling what she has been exposed to.

It's been hard and talking about it was a lot tougher than I thought it would be, but I hope opening up helps someone else. #strongertogether

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
