Poema 22 | Rebecca Lombardo on Creativity & Living With Mental Illness
Today author, blogger and podcaster Rebecca Lombardo joins me on the podcast. For 25 years Rebecca has battled with mental illness of various kinds. She’s also had to undergo the trauma of losing both parents, and battled with suicidal thoughts. Yet through writing, publishing a book, podcasting, and an incredibly supportive husband, she has survived and is doing amazing work creating safe spaces for people to discuss mental illness.
Rebecca, with great courage and honesty, shares her story, and the truth that it’s not always about having a happy thriving ending, but that the challenges of mental health are ongoing, a daily battle, and that everyone struggling with mental health has to find their own unique way of surviving, and maybe even, occasionally, thriving.
Rebecca’s story will both challenge and inspire you, and leave you encouraged.
