A breakdown to reach a break through!
Karlie shares her journey after she finished studying interrior design. She moved to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan without knowing anyone or ever having visited there. The excitement of a new position and working in her field were very driving her energy. However it wasn't long before she realized that she was there without a safety net.
Karlie began not feeling like herself, having anxiety and stress, having intrusive thoughts. She first spoke with a doctor, without any help, she was left on her own. Karlie recognized that she was not in a good place and chose to go to emergency for help. Karlie reached out to her aunt, who connected with her Dad.
Karlie says that this breakdown was the break through she needed to repair a crappy relationship with her Dad. She believes her Dad healed her. He was a rock, and although he broke down in tears when he saw her, he never left her side. He stayed with her through her transition from hospital to home. Their relationship has done a 180 and is an essential part of her support systems, of which she is so grateful.
Karlie is very aware of her mental health, and shares that with her partner. She has built her own safety nets and supports, but still needs to go back and check herself. Karlie recommends that if you think there is something wrong, then go to the doctor and ask for help.
Karlie reminds everyone, that it will be ok, that you may experience setbacks, but by moving foward it will be ok.
