Hi, my Name is Amanda. I am 38 and mother of 4. I have Anxiety and Depression.
It takes me a lot to get through a day sometimes and other days are a joy. I am not shy about who I am or my mental issues. This face art I did was a tribute to my mother who also has depression and anxiety. Her description to me was 1/4 a face happy, 1/4 sad, 1/4 courage, 1/4 fear.
I am very happy to find that there are more people willing to speak out about their own mental issues. You are not alone and you are exactly who you were meant to be. Love yourself as you are. Accepting myself has been the hardest part of my journey but I'm not giving up on me.
