Tonight’s #PPDChat will be hosted by the fantastic @DonutsMama.
She’ll be addressing the topic of PPD & Friends. It’s an important one as PPD not only changes us, but it also changes friendships – for a variety of reasons.
Friends may not understand what we are going through and not know how to appropriately reach out. Or they may be nervous about now being friends with someone battling a mental health issue. Or, in a worst case scenario, they may no longer want to be friends with someone who has a mental health issue.
There is also the other side – that of ourselves. We become enclosed in a bubble as we battle for our sanity and are not capable of reaching out appropriately ourselves. Then, as we begin to heal, we find the rubble which exists beyond our borders and are overwhelmed with how to proceed. Particularly for those who battle against anxiety, the prospect of making new friends or setting out to be in public is absolutely overwhelming.
Join @DonutsMama as she discusses the very important topic of PPD & Friends tonight at 9pm ET on Twitter. You don’t want to miss it!
