About Me

Hello, friends.

I'm Carly Hildyard, a writer, videographer, and former television journalist.


This is the story how I navigate through anxiety, depression, and mental illness.


I am not a mental health professional or expert, and none of what I write is intended to diagnose or instruct anyone struggling with their mental health.


This is simply my journey.

Fragmented Lens

Everyone of us views the world through a different lens. Our perception is our reality, and mental illness often changes my perception. I used to think it made my vision disjointed or clouded, but I've settled on the word fragmented. Fragmented lenses may be split into a thousand pieces, but I believe it allows me to see the world and people in a different way, a beautiful way.
