I am not going to lie to you. I am literally dreading this moment!.. Writing about why I am here and who I am. I don’t want to. But I will. I have had a lot of people ask me why I have started writing and at first my answer was “therapy” but now it is turning into so much more. Let me explain..
The past few years have been like the roller coaster ride I thought would never end. We suffered two miscarriages, and the first one was literally life changing as I miscarried at 4 months, yet carried that tiny soul for months after, while we begged and pleaded with doctors and hospitals to help me, no one would listen and it was not until I fell unconscious at home and was rushed into the ER that they finally paid attention to what I was telling them, and rushed me in for emergency surgery that same day. A year later, we lost another little soul. Throughout all of this I left my job. I was working in a very stressful environment, and this was not helping things to say the least.
I fell into a place I did not know existed. I felt like I had lost myself. I didn’t understand it. And like a lot of women who go through this, I felt like I wasn’t enough and I had done something wrong. Why me? Why doesn’t any doctor or hospital seem to be concerned with me? Why won’t my body pass this? Are we the only ones who care about this little soul? So many questions. So little answers.
Which leads us here.. I did not know any one person in my life that could burst into tears at any moment of any day, yet I could. It was when I came to this realization that I decided it was time to get the old Brittany back. The one who was full of life, confident, happy go lucky, motivated, independent, and determined. Stay tuned for updates as I journey down this road.. I am excited to see where it may take me!
I feel now like I want to leave no stone unturned and I invite you all to join me for the ride. Together we can try out new recipes, share beauty tips and tricks, workouts, adventures, or hobbies.. the possibilities are endless! This place is all about being brave. Be brave with me.
