We have all survived something in life. Join us as Veronica Coney shares her story of survival.

I’m a devoted mother of 4 children and a license practical nurse of nearly 10 years and counting. My goal of   becoming a Registered Nurse was interrupted when I became a patient myself. At the age of 31, was a stroke survivor. A week after giving birth to my beautiful baby daughter, I suffered the worst headache of my life. Why me? I didn’t have any significant health issues. No diabetes, no high blood pressure, nothing out of the ordinary. One thing nagged at me — I was in a toxic relationship and under a tremendous amount of stress. The day I got the headache, I had been very angry about a particular incident. After the stroke, I found myself searching for answers. Having suffered more than my fair share of sadness and grief over the years, I began to see how those feelings bubbled up and exploded when I got angry. I want to use those experiences to inspire you to always be conscious of what you’re thinking about.  these last years, I have hosted an blog talk radio show for women uniting for change, became involved in community activism, and have become a passinate advocate for people with mental illness.   Also a published author, and a big dreamer of we can do anything we put our mind to.
