I’ve been dealing with depression all of my life.
In 1990, I met Mike Powroznyk.
In 2004, I tried to end my own life, with pills.
In 2005, I reconnected with Mike after 13 years.
In 2006, I quit drinking, and moved in with Mike.
In 2007, I went to a doctor and said “help me” and continued my journey to “getting better”.
In 2008, I broke up with Mike and moved away.
In 2009, on the morning of July 17th, I found out Mike killed himself.
In August of 2009, I met YouSpoke and vowed to share my story, openly, forever…
I am a survivor of suicide, in a couple of ways. I believe that sharing our stories helps us and others heal. Ever since I started getting better, I have continually felt “called” to helping others get better, feel better or simply just realize that there is hope.
Being a part of YouSpoke continually inspires me. I hope we can do the same for you.
