I'm Melinda — holistic healing COACH for mamas & families
It’s time to ditch the new year’s resolutions! Choose an intention to guide your next year for better results and more satisfaction.
Sometimes in life, we become so inundated with stress that we end up in a hole too deep to dig ourselves out of. This doesn’t have to feel like a sad pit of despair, maybe it feels like being constantly overwhelmed, on edge, and irritable. This is what usually happens to me when I’m experiencing more stress than I can manage. Prozac was the ladder that helped me climb out of that hole of irritation. If you know me, you know that I avoid prescription medicine at all costs. But this cost became too much to bear and I am glad that I changed my mind and took the pill. The most amazing side-effect was that it completely changed my daughter’s regulation and mood as we were co-regulating better together.

I am a bulldozer, or as my husband has lovingly said, a snowplow, due to my Minnesota roots. I spent the first 25ish years pushing through life without regard to what my “machine”, my body, needed, and without listening to the signals it was giving me.
