  • Summary

  • No one ever said life is easy. But I believe by giving yourself permission, you will find you have more control over your life than you realize. Hello, I'm Julie. I want to share with you, how my own personal life experiences led me to the person I am today. I have navigated through alcoholism, divorce, caregiving, blending families and discovering and owning my truth.

    You don't have to feel alone with your hardships. I believe in reaching out and showing true compassion and empathy from a non-judgmental approach. I'm a mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend and soon to be wife. I'm just like you, a real person who is doing the best she can. I hope you will join me by taking responsibility for yourself, by only controlling the things you can and letting go of the things you can't. By doing this, you will have discovered the secret to having happy, healthy and more fulfilling relationships.

    Please feel free to email me with any questions, comments or suggestions! I would like to give a shout out to Andreas Wohlfahrt, he is the photographer whose image I chose from Pexels, the photo of heart-shaped balloon, to be my podcast cover. The music I chose to use for my podcast was composed and played by The Lost Harmony. Please check out his music!

    We have made some progress with our society handling mental health shaming. But we still have a long way to go. In this episode, I will continue to discuss how mental health conditions affect not only adults, but children as well.
    We all have seen the heartbreaking tragedies that have resulted in school shootings across our country. I felt it more personally when Sandy Hook Elementary School, in Newtown Connecticut, was the target to every parent's worse nightmare. I was living in Connecticut at that time, on December 14, 2012 , when a mentally disturbed 20 year old man, killed 27 people and then himself. 20 first grade children, aged 6 and 7, had their young lives murdered.
    Even though my grandchildren were living in another part of Connecticut, it shook me to my core to realize that every state and community, can fall prey to horror.
    I believe in breaking down the barriers that prevent people from getting the professional help they need to get positive and healthy results from proper diagnosis's and treatment for their own mental health.
    There is help. Take that first step and reach out to a mental health advocate.

    1. We have made some progress with our society handling mental health shaming. But, we still have a long way to go. I think there still is a misconception about what mental health means. The World Health Organization definition is; Mental Health is "a state of well being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community."


    We all go through tough and difficult times in our lives. How do we know if we have a mental health condition? Or if someone we care about does? Sometimes it can seem obvious when someone is going through a hard time but there is no simple way of knowing that it might be coinciding with a mental health concern. Only mental health professionals can diagnose an individual.
