  1. Thank you SO much for sharing….. currently having severe ppd and anxiety and developed insomnia along the way. I took Zoloft for two weeks made me even worse, I’m curious what medication did you take?

  2. The more videos I watch of yours….the more I realize we have so much in common! So happy you made this video and i hope it helped someone who watched!

  3. Having ppd and anxiety is absolutely horrible. You're down and up at the same time and people look at you like you're crazy. :'(

  4. I walked much of that same journey in the last year, I just so well understood, and how very hard it is to first open up to others! I'm a Christian too, and just so thankful to God for helping me thru this journey! I also needed medication, and as I understand this more, I realize that depression and anxiety can be treated, just as other sickness, and it's not something we need to be embarrassed about and need to keep suffering with alone. Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. I have anxiety & depression its so difficult because my husband has never experienced it himself and although he trys to be understanding he gets so frustrated at times with me and he has a hard time grasping and understanding why I am the way I am day to day I'm not sure if mine is postpartum because my daughter is now 3 and I didn't experience all this till she was like 1 … but how does your husband help you to overcome this what did he do to educate himself on this and has it made you two closer ? does it cause issues between you two ??? thank you for this video it helps to hear I'm not alone!😍😍😍😘😘

  6. I'm glad I found this vid.amd glad u made it. I am a wife. I am not a mom..and we couldn't b more diff.. but I relate to u and I love that..I recently have come out and started to seek treatment for my anxiety and depression. This is definitely helpful..keep up the good work πŸ‘

  7. YOU ARE AMAZING!! Thank you for sharing something so personal!!!!!!!! You give me hope! God bless you!!

  8. Katie you are amazingly brave for putting your truth on display. I appreciate and respect your honesty and transparency. On so many levels I can relate. Thank you so much.πŸ’œ

  9. It makes me feel better when I watch these type of videos I know I'm not alone πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

  10. Thank you so much for sharing! Sharing one's "junk" for lack of a better word is probably one of the bravest things you can do. I cannot imagine taking about some of my junk. Thank you for bringing encouragement! πŸ’•

  11. I like you even more now!! I always have had anxiety but didn't really realize it until I collapsed while alone with my 9 month old and had to call 911. I had no idea that it was a panic attack; I thought I was dying.
    I have more control over it now but it still bubbles up and I accept that I'll always have to deal with this.
    Thanks for your bravery.
    My fav book about this subject is "When Panic Attacks."

  12. Sometimes being Christians think we have to be perfect… which is unrealistic!! You can use it be become closer to Christ.
    Having thyroid, genetics , chemical imbalance …many issues . Honestly I take medication. I have a life now, growing up I must have cried an ocean .. I thank God for giving me a life that it manageable.

  13. It takes brave and strong people to speak out, to help end the stigma associated with mental health issues. MANY MORE people NEED to do this. It needs to be shoved down the throat of nay-sayers etc. Doctors need to be held accountable for not listening and not helping.

    Bravo to you for sharing your story! I won't share mine here today, as it is different from yours, but mental health issues units us in a way. Even if the issues are different. Again…good on you for sharing! More people need to share!

  14. πŸ’“"I just finally let the world know…… 'hey, I'm not ok.'"πŸ’“
    This part gave me chills. Because I went through the exact same thing of hiding and had to come to a place where I just didn't care anymore and I had to get honest.
    I'm so glad you shared your story Katie…. I know its a hard one to tell, but it does bring healing into this world and even into your own heart. The more we let others know this isn't something they have to do alone, the more 'worth it' it becomes.

  15. we have two kids and live in los angeles as well. it's so expensive and overwhelming for us to pay our bills. I don't know if it's depression..but sometimes I feel like I'm failing at everything.

  16. Awesome video Katie it was so brave of you to talk about this I to struggle with depression and anxiety.Love you.

  17. You are incredible. I am so proud of you for being so open and honest about your experience with anxiety and depression. It can be so hard to talk about but that's exactly what we need to be doing. Talking about it does help and it really helps to know you're not alone and that there are many other people out there going through the same thing. For me, talking about it with my friends and family and then allowing them to help me has made such a huge difference in my life. I know this video will help others as well…it's so important to know you are not the only one. I love you so much! Thanks for sharing your heart with us.

  18. Wow- so proud of you for sharing this! This is absolutely amazing and I really believe this will help so many people out there. I know you sharing your story with me has helped so much. I love you so much. You have a one of a kind soul KT β™₯️

  19. I never knew I had anxiety until I had my children. It wasnt so bad with my first, but having my second child it seemed to get horrible. Its still a daily struggle and it definitely puts a damper on me being a stay at home mom. I was on medication for it before, but with moving and change of jobs for my husband we cant afford it and don't have insurance. Your video really helped me feel like its not just me who struggles with it. Im sure it was hard to do this kind of video so thank you

  20. Thank you for walking this with me ❀️ Love you so much. "The best and worst year of my life" yes!

  21. Ha ha love that shirt! And yes it is so healing to talk about it! I felt so much better once I talked about my postpartum anxiety after hiding it for 9 months! So important to bring awareness πŸ’™
