Today’s episode is a big eye opener on a topic that I think is very common, yet not talked about a lot.
The young woman featured in today’s episode of the “Beyond Clothes” podcast is a beautiful and brave teenager who suffered from a fear of life at a very young age. In her pre-teen years, Sam Wahl started experiencing dark and uncontrollable thoughts. She started self-harming herself to release the deep and dark pain she was feeling inside.
After she started having thoughts of suicide and even going so far as to make a list of things she wanted to accomplish before ending her life, Sam knew something had to be done. She went to her mom, Angie Wahl, who is also featured in this episode, and told her she wanted to be committed.
After telling her mom what she had been going through, doctors diagnosed Sam with depression associated anxiety.
Throughout the episode, Sam talks about what it was like to feel trapped with her painful thoughts. And her mom, Angie, shares her story from a mother’s perspective of what it was like to be a parent to someone experiencing such pain and feeling hopeless and somewhat at fault.
Sam and Angie are a beautiful example of how a very dark situation can be turned into a positive and inspiring message. They are a prime example of what a light at the end of a very dark tunnel can look like.
This is a story about bravery, hope, open communication between kids and their parents and just an overall message that no matter what you’re going through in life, there is always someone that can relate to you and be there for you.
