Daisies and Bruises is both sides of life, the pleasure and the pain. It is merging passion with patience and finding hope in the face of hell. Daisies and Bruises is creating the life you need to survive.
This blog is the product of a 26-year-old named Erin finding her way one step and one word at a time. After losing most of her youth to severe depression, she decided that since death was no longer an option, she had to find a way to live. This is it.
This blog is for her to tell her story, but it’s also for you. If she can find her way then you can too.

“You’re giving courage, and that’s a good thing. Also, you do it with capital letters, periods, and a strong voice, therefore I appreciate this little corner of grammatically correct internet.” ~ Kaitlin
