Perri Lauren on Superpeer
From Depression to Domination
Hey! If you are here, you problem already know me! My real name is Perri, but people (well, me) call me SpartanChickie! Who am I? I am a Stage Actress turned Suicidal Depression Survivor turned Obstacle Course Racer and TV and Film Actor! Whether it's Spartan Race and the OCR world, my experience with depression, or yu just want to get to know more about me...I want to answer your questions and help you find out ANYTHING you want to know and have been curious about. The sky is the limit! (just kidding, the limit does not exist). Why am I telling you this? Racing changed and saved my life and because mental health is a stigma and people think they aren't allowed to talk about it. My goal has always been to fight and break that stigma and create a space where people could feel free to open up and not feel alone. Nothing but positive things has ever come from sharing my story, being true to who I am and being open and vulnerable. You deserve the same opportunity. You deserve a place to talk about what you are going through, unapologetically. I am happy to be that person. I had to fight really hard to get back to where I am today. It was quite a journey with many obstacles, literal and figurative, and I of course did not do it alone so neither should you. There was so much I learned from my experiences and it wasn't until I got through the thick of is that I could really appreciate what had happened and what I had done. I just want to be there for you, help you, and share a piece of that insight to shed a light in any way I can. I could have used that light myself.
