Alcohol Awareness…No your Limit!!

✨Wow never thought I would be calling myself an alcoholic, but that’s what I am✨ I used and abused alcohol for purposes no one should use them for. I blacked out, drove while drunk, even destroyed some relationships along the way. Alcohol became my one and only friend, I hid mini bottles, would pull over and park just to get a drink in before I headed home. The last straw was when I embarrassed my son and he pleaded with me never to drink again. Nothing like a child doing the parenting, so this month I’ll be celebrating because I’ve been sober for 3 1/2 months🙌🏾 With consistent willpower and prayer I think I will make it through the rest of the year. Shout out to those in recovery, it’s not easy but the reward is worth it. 😊

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
