I have faced many hardships in my life. My time on this Earth has only been for forty-three years but it has been a tough one. I have faced many adversities in my life, and I have come through those adversities stronger and more determined. I am a single mother to a beautiful sixteen-year-old girl who more times than not has saved my life.

This book is about my struggle with mental illness. I have been through cancer, deep depression, anxiety, anorexia, and bulimia. My hope is that my story will find its way to someone who may need to feel like they are not alone. We all face demons in this life, but it is up to us on how we choose to face those demons. I have had times when I felt like I had no one and I felt lost and wanted to simply give up.

I knew that my story could not end with regret and giving up. I have so much more to offer in this life and I see it in my daughter's eyes every day. I am relying on my faith in God to lead me through the darkness, and with His help, I can help lead others through theirs. My weakest moments brought me into my strongest moments.

For those who think that they are alone, I am here to let you know that you are not alone and I know that through this book, you can realize that. We are worthy in God's love.
