My name is Leah, and I am a young wife, married to a teacher, and living in the Midwest. I’m a musician, and a writer, and a photographer, and a really good cook and I love to read, decorate, write, and build relationships with people.
But it took me a long time to realize all of that, since for a period my life was defined by fear. I struggle with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), and for a long time I was whatever I needed to be to escape from fear.
That is no longer who I am. As I healed, life became more precious and what I loved became more dear because of how long I cut myself off from it. But it didn’t leave me the same person I was before I began to struggle. When I peeled away the fear-colored film over my life, I also peeled away a lot of lies in my world that had defined me my whole existence.
I am a girl on a journey. While I am still engaged in the battle with OCD, I have come so far as to believe I’m seeing the other side. But I don’t want that to be all that I am. I want to honestly embrace my life for all that it is, and I want to work through the bad and enjoy the good.
I hope you join me on my road.
