Join us in an intimate conversation with Vikki Friedman as she bravely shares her mental health journey, including her time spent in a psychiatric ward.
Vikki bravely opens up about her mental health journey, highlighting a pivotal moment in a psychiatric ward after years of battling anxiety and depression. Medication was a crucial support, especially during pregnancies, allowing her to cherish her sons’ early years. However, complacency led to a harrowing period of chronic hives and deep depression, where she struggled to care for her young boys.
Seeking a new psychiatrist marked a turning point, landing her in a psychiatric hospital for five challenging weeks. Though not marked by any specific tragedy, the experience was profoundly difficult. Vikki’s physical and emotional state hit rock bottom, leading to significant weight loss and a heartbreaking absence from her son’s birthday.
Recovery was slow, taking nearly a year to regain a sense of normalcy. Vikki made a promise to herself: never let things reach such a dire point again. She committed to regular self-care, including wellness retreats, offering precious time away from life’s demands.
This is Vikki’s journey. From the depths of despair, she found strength, resilience, and a renewed. 💪✨
