Many knew the Laura who loved life and always seemed to be "happy". I
wasn't. In fact I had been carrying something dark in my life. Something
that I didn't want people to know. Something that eventually would eat
away at me physically and emotionally. My story starts as a child...who
wanted to please everyone. It wasn't until the age of 20 when I was
talking with a friend and the conversation got a little deep. So deep,
that hidden childhood memories of things that no child should ever
experience came flooding back. And that's the moment where my mind and
feelings began to disconnect. I realized that I wasn't making myself
happy by suppressing those dark memories. I tried desperately to act
like everything was okay. In this episode, you will understand exactly
how much suppressing my past effected me physically and emotionally, but
why I title my story, "No Longer a Slave to Fear". One thing is for
certain, I do understand depression and I have conquered it. So CAN YOU!
What you say is what you become.
