Hi everyone! Let me introduce myself first. My name is Brooke Tornetto. I am 21years old, married to an amazing marine. We are both from St. Louis stationed in Quantico, VA right now. I thought it would be nice to have a blog explaining my experience to people so they don't have to go through the same thing I did alone, or allowing them to change themselves. Getting married and moving 800 miles from home, I left everything behind. My family, friends, and my job. I loved them all. But of course, I wanted to be with my husband. I got super depressed and my anixety was taking over my life. There were days I didn't eat, I laid in bed and didn't move. I slept most days and ate A LOT. I gained so much weight. I felt lost, like the whole world was spinning and I didn't even exist anymore. I turned to my husband, but it wasn't the same. I cried when he wasn't home, that's all I could do. Now that I had gained so much weight from both anixety and depression, I was even more depressed now. I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror. When I did, all I thought was, "What the hell happened to me?" I kept feeling sorry for myself each and every day....until. Until, one day I told myself I don't want to feel like this anymore. I don't want to feel like the whole world is against me. I have to change. I NEED TO CHANGE. SO I DID.
