Because when I was little I wanted to grow up and get Postpartum Mood Disorders just so I could blog. (I’m kidding.)
Seriously though – because when I was clawing my way out of the dark rabbit hole into which I fell, all I wanted was another Mom to tell me everything would be okay. I needed to hear that I wasn’t alone. I needed whispered words of hope in the wee hours of the night. I needed to NOT be alone in that dark damp hole.
This is me. Telling you that you’re not alone.
