Hey I’m Shae and this is my space to write about anything & everything to do with mental health and society
Twenty – three years ago I tragically lost my father to alcoholism. I was fifteen at the time and had no idea how to cope with losing a parent. Evidently, from that point on I have had a life long battle with mental health issues & addiction. As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! In addition to my early loss in life, I was subjected to a lot of domestic violence put upon my mother by the hands of her boyfriends over the years. As I grew older I found drugs, and from there I progressively became a full blown addict.
Considering I already had quite severe depression and anxiety, the drugs escalated my mental health tenfold. However, I have been sober for many years now and can only move forward. I love to write and find it fascinating to research and read about mental health and sociology as a whole. I have lived through a lot so my experience will hopefully shine through in a positive light. Enjoy.
