Still on this Journey - Me, My Daughter and Her Mental Illness

This one was tough. Harder to record than I thought it would be. As we begin wrapping up Season 1, several listeners said hearing my story, of raising a child with a mental illness, really resonated with them. So, today is an update of how things are going with my girl.

It has been a really hard few months and talking about it was emotional but helpful. I hope those who listen have more empathy for those of us on this journey. And for my sisters in the struggle, I am praying for you!

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.
