How HBC came about:

Grief and sadness are a deep part of the human experience. Sometimes the events in our lives cause this kind of emotion, of course. However, there are other times where our chemistry seems to betray us. My name is Monica. I use this podcast as my diary. I share all of the diagnosis and events in real time - as well as the past - in order to share an authentic experience. I want to be your grief companion, sadness friend. I want to share with you what helps me on a daily basis. I'm constantly learning, too. I'll share everything with you and hope that together we can find a balance. Life is a beautiful thing. I know what it is like to lose sight of that because of loss, brain chemistry, or thoughts of suicide. I'm not going to tell you what you want to hear. I'm just going to tell you what's in my heart.
