The Girl Behind The Posts

I am much more than my mental health struggles. I am Kristina. I am a wife. A mother. A daughter. A children's author. A sister. A friend. I am somebody. Sometimes I think I am nobody, but that's just my mental illnesses talking. 

I was hospitalized back in 2016 because of my mental health. Before and during my hospitalization I remember feeling so lonely and misunderstood in my struggles. So I created a blog a few months later to grow the type of community and space I was looking for. 

Two years after that, I wrote a children's book about a boy who struggles with anxiety. Because I was that boy growing up feeling alone and scared in my thoughts.
