Hi, I am glad to have you here.
I was born in Minas, Lavalleja, Uruguay. I'm 47 years old, been married for 21 years, have two amazing daughters and plenty to say.
For a long time, I’ve been wondering what I could do to help others find the answers and help I did not have while struggling with depression and anxiety. I’ve also been dealing with chronic pain for many years and, to complete the mix, have experienced the effects of strong religious indoctrination, which caused additional trauma, guilt and psychological pain.
It has been a long journey, and it is certainly not over, but I have managed to find some answers, get some help, and arm myself with some useful tools that have made the struggles easier to deal with and, most importantly, help me enjoy life.
I moved around a lot in my life, since I was only 6 years old, which didn’t help me in developing deep roots. I can relate to people that have a hard time trying to feel “at home”, regardless of where they live. It is an exceptional challenge that requires strength and time just to be confronted, let alone overcome.
I have also dealt with mental and emotional health issues in my family, so I can too relate to those who have experienced, first hand, the suffering of a loved one.
But I have good news too…
Little by little, with the help of family, friends, and professionals, I find myself in a better place today. I cannot offer any magical answers, because there are none. There are no magical pills either. But there’s help available, treatments that work, and science that helps. I have also devoted myself to taking great care of my body, following a consistent workout schedule and learning how to nurture my body with actual food. That has had an immense, life-changing impact on me, and I will be tapping on this issue constantly, because it works.
I will gladly share everything I have learned up until today on my journey, and try to answer any question you might have in the best possible way.
I hope to hear back from you soon.
In the meantime, take care, and stay strong.
