The life skills specialist from Glasgow, Ky., who was on a one-week maternity leave from her job, had been living on her own for years.
But Casey is now a mother of two with a 3-month-old son.
“I’ve been waiting to have a baby for years, and this is the first time I’ve ever had someone ask me to get out of the house,” she said.
Casey said she is a single mother with a boyfriend.
“But I’ve never had someone say ‘you need to have more children, this is your life,’ or ‘this is what you should do,'” she said, referring to the phrase used to describe women who want children.
“It’s really difficult.”
She said she had to make a choice between having children, taking care of her family and going back to work.
Casey has not had a baby in five years.
“You get to a certain age where you feel, I’m going to have to stop doing something because I don’t want to have another one,” she added.
Casey said the idea of going back into work after being away from her family for a while was terrifying. “
So it was like a no-brainer.”
Casey said the idea of going back into work after being away from her family for a while was terrifying.
“To go back to my job was the hardest thing for me to do,” she told ABC News.
“There was so much stuff I was doing that I didn’t want or needed to be doing, but I just couldn’t do it.”
She went back to her job after a month.
“When you’re at home, you’re not in the house, you have your life, your friends and your family and you can relax and be with your family,” she explained.
Casey had no idea how to handle being back at home again.
She said there were so many things she wanted to do and wanted to be involved in that she didn’t know how to get them done.
“This is what I did, this was the life I wanted, I was not able to get it out of my system,” she continued.
“For me to go back and see my mum again, it was such a relief to see her smiling again.
I thought, she’ll be a lot happier to see me.”
Casey also had a difficult time dealing with the stress of living with the baby.
“One day I’d have to call my mum and tell her what I was going through, and she’d go, ‘oh, he’s a little bit cranky,'” she recalled.
“She’d go off on her mum about it, but she was just so supportive.
She just made me feel like I could do this.”
“It took a while to get used to it” ‘I was scared’ for Casey Casey’s baby But Casey said it was only when she started to get better that she started feeling more confident.
“Then I realised I could just trust my instincts,” she remembered.
“In a way, I had the confidence to say no to anything.
It was scary for me, but you don’t really want to be in a situation where you’re just, ‘I’m going nowhere, I can’t be here, I just can’t get out.'”
Casey said while it was terrifying to not be able to take her own life, she had no regrets.
“All of the work I’ve done has paid off and I’ve been able to go to the top, and I’m so happy with where I’m at,” she noted.
“Now I’ve got my baby, it’s a lot easier to handle it.”
Casey hopes that others will have the same experience of going through similar challenges.
“Maybe some people will be able, at least temporarily, to get through this and not have to worry about it again,” she advised.

Some people might have this whole, ‘well, I’ve just done what I needed to do to make it work.'”
