About The Book:
What will everybody think?
When I started this experiment at the beginning of 2019, to write every day, I simply thought I would be recording the mundane life of a mother, wife and struggling writer.
And yes, I considered the fact my family and friends and anybody else that reads this diary -my diary- would have access to my most intimate fears, hopes, thoughts, maybe even an embarrassing moment or two.
But who could have predicted that I would be providing a detailed account into my struggle with my mental health?
I had no idea that the anxiety that only ever played a minor role in my life would make its debut as the starring antagonist. Or that the obsessive thoughts and irrational fears that were always real to me would be given new life on the pages of my diary.
2019 turned out to be the worst year of my life and I can’t believe that I’m sharing this devastating journey with the world.
I came close to giving up, I made a near-fatal mistake and I spent too many moments terrified of my own thoughts.
But as nightmarish as that ordeal was, allowing readers to have a piece of my soul is even more frightening.
Publishing this book may be the bravest thing I’ve ever done.
This is my story.
