I know I do a lot of events but this event is specially closed to my heart, actually all my events are pretty near and dear to my heart, why? because nothing made me felt so isolated than being pregnant.
There is just so much information and misinformation out there, people are so quick to judge, hormones are already surging and then a slew of advice from well meaning folks to those who have questionable intent.
Anyway, on Saturday, June 18 at Joseph Whidbey State Park will be the first Climb here in Whidbey Island. So here goes "Why I Climb"
I climb for myself because its time I give myself credit. The moment I took an active part in my healing process, the moment I became honest with myself is the moment I realized that I will be ok, it wasn't easy, it wasn't instantaneous. I have always been hard on myself and it was hard for me to give myself a break.
I climb because I want to help fight the stigma, to help pass on the information. Its not only for the ones currently suffering, its not for the people who just suffered, its also for people who didn't know they were suffering decades ago.
I climb for a lot of reasons, but I'm doing the best I can to reach the ones who are in their darkest hour and is struggling to reach out.
