‘I don’t get sad when I think about it. I don’t cry when I think of all the not so nice things I’ve said to my kids and I don’t get sick with fear and worry when my husband isn’t as helpful as I would like him to be.’ Some days I can say those things and be completely free with the truth that I am. Some days, some moments, I can’t. I think about PPD recovery ALL the time. I wonder how best I can help you, who I need to talk to, to get the message of recovery to you, and also what you need to heal safely without side effects. I am trying to reach you because I know you are looking for me. Maybe you don’t know it yet but I know how scary it is to admit that you need help. It is difficult to even comprehend how uncomfortable it is to be so vulnerable as to say; ‘I can’t do this alone’. It is scary to admit that you can’t control your thoughts and that you are struggling to function on a daily personal level. You might be scared to admit that you don’t know what’s going on, why you feel this way or maybe even that you don’t feel anything. That’s why I want to help you find a way to be safe enough to say; “Help Me”.
I will continue to pray that we can find each other and continue the journey of recovery together. I am hoping to make a video this weekend for Christmas, So that you can KNOW that you are not alone.
