***This is a very real and raw glimpse into the mind of someone who has gone through PPD or postpartum anxiety. This post is not encouraging, uplifting or inspiring. I didn't write it for anyone, I wrote it as a way to start to process what I've been through over the last year and get… Continue reading When Mommy Still Hasn’t Come Up For Air
If you think you know how I'm doing, you might be surprised. If you think I'm handling life well, you'd be wrong. The truth is, I lock myself out of the house. I forget my computer. I leave my debit card at the coffee shop I go to for lunch at 3:00 pm - (I… Continue reading If You Give A Girl A Husband, A Baby, and A Job, She’ll Probably Rock It (Unless She’s Me)
