Breaking Down the Stigma of Therapy

Therapy, for myself, was something I had long associated with weakness and the inability to help myself. I cheered on others who sought counseling but didn’t see it fitting into my life, so I was determined that any meeting I had with a therapist would be short. I advocated for therapy and counseling and firmly…

Great Expectations

What on EARTH would make someone want another baby? I was baffled and could feel tears stinging my eyes for the second time that day, there was NO WAY I was ever doing this again! I looked at my husband and told him with purpose “NO MORE BABIES!” He looked down, took my hand, and…

Is It COLD in Here?

Whilst out shopping with my family I began to notice a trend among the mannequins. No, not that they were all a size 2 with double D breasts and should have back problems and arthritic knees. I noticed how badly they needed a sweater. Or band aids. My reaction? “Rock hard abs, just like me!…

Blogging Because of the Friendship

The biggest reason I am grateful for blogging is because of the friendship. The community of bloggers that have supported me throughout my struggles with PPD and chronic depression. You know who I mean! YOU GUYS! There were many days when I didn’t think I should hit publish, and I questioned my writing. I questioned…
