For most of my life, I’ve suffered from Selective Mutism, a paralyzing social anxiety disorder in which a person normally capable of speech is unable to do so in most settings.
here are so many people who struggle with social anxiety, depression, and other forms of mental illness. So many people feel as if they don't have a voice. For 24 years, I felt as if I didn't have a voice. While I still struggle every day, I’m determined to no longer be silent.
While it still kind of makes me sick to my stomach to know that my life has become such an open book, it seems my story has taken on a life of its own and I would be interfering with a Divine plan if I didn’t share it.
This is a small part of my story. I kindly ask that you please watch it and help me spread the word. It's my hope that it will encourage you to keep fighting and let you know that you’re not alone.
