This is me. This is what mental health issues look like up close and personal.
I'm not worried that this is the end of the world. I'm worried that this is more of the same.
Here's what the "cry it out" method really looks like in our house with our five-month-old son.
Even if your coping mechanisms aren't the healthiest or most Instagram-worthy, they are helping you survive this truly extraordinary and horrible time.
I feel like I'm living a life well-lived, for the first time in a long time.
It is okay to need gentleness.
Having a shame-based personality means that, at my core, I truly believe that I am a bad, unlovable person.
Sometimes it feels like I spend hardly any time actually interacting with my baby.
We need change. This is non-negotiable.
I can't help but feel like I'm doing something terribly wrong.
