Happy Mother’s Day

Today I want to take the chance to, once again, thank my mom for always being there for us (my brother and me), through the good and the bad and never, ever letting us down. We disagree sometimes, she gets nervous when I drive, but some people don't even want to get in the car … Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day

Get support and give support

I think one of the many things that can help you heal from whatever situation you're going through is charing your experience and talking to other people.
