Learn More About Me

Hi! I’m Wrae Sanders, blogger, mom, wife, friend and a lot more. I’m in Louisville, KY.

I began blogging as part of a different project and started guest posting for others. I realized that blogging was taking a life of its own, so here I am!

The mission behind this blog:

To spread awareness about mental health. I’ve worked in the field for a decade and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology. (Thanks, Spalding University!) I graduated in 2007. Some of my knowledge leaks into my posts. I struggle with anxiety and depression on a daily basis.

I have friends and family that have struggles and have lost an uncle and friends to suicide. I have no attempts- my dad is an attempt survivor, as are two of my childhood friends. I have also lost other friends to suicide.

One loss changed me and my life forever in 2015. Jake was one of the most important people in my life, and losing him was terrible. This blog is meant to help others, which I enjoy doing. If anything I write helps one person, then I consider it mission accomplished.

Parenting is the hardest but the best thing I will ever do with my life. That’s why it is a major part of this blog.

When I am not blogging, I am probably reading, coloring in adult coloring books, listening to a true-crime podcast, or hanging out with my kids and animals.

My blog will cover these topics, but are subject to change:

-being sober (my date is 1/1/2017)

-parenting (some of this will be special needs parenting)

-mental health issues (anxiety, depression, suicide prevention, etc. I will include trigger warnings and resources)

-self-care, self-esteem and other awesome things in that area

-meditation and yoga

-other topics as they come
