At the end of two of the presentations, I was asked a question that I am often asked when I present my story. The question...

A Day At The Office

I'm racing out the door with my work bag slung over my shoulder, a glass of water in one hand, and my handful of morning medications in the other. Anti-depressant? Check. Mood stabilizer? Check. Adderall? Check. Anti-anxiety? Check. I gulp them down with the water and race to the bus stop. It's 7:45 am and I'm running late for work. On the walk/...

Walker also never imagined she would need to use her skills as a psychiatric nurse on her own child.When Walker’s youngest son Courtland turned four,...

About Me

I am not mean I am nice. I’m thankful for the things I have and do. I like myself so I don’t want to change. I am a lot like those around me. I have feelings, emotions too.Sometimes I might get angry, upset, surprised or excited. My emotions are built up inside of me. When I’m angry and stomping. I feel like I’m about to burst, like piñata filled...
