I am so unbelievably thrilled and honored to announce that I'm being featured here on Scary Mommy today!
AAAHHHHH!!! Scary Mommy! Like, one of my favorite, most awesomest blogs, ever.
Please head over and leave a whole bunch of love for Jill!
Note: It didn't occur to me while writing this piece, but it's come to light through some of the comments that my point of view could be perceived as, "Taking a pill will fix anything for you!" While that was actually true for me, I understand that it could be an irresponsible message. The point of my post wasn't to say, "Woo, pills are awesome!" It was just to encourage women not to be afraid to admit, own and seek help for feelings, thoughts and emotions that aren't normal and don't have to be suffered through. I just wanted to encourage new mommies to be brave. There's so much suffering that can be avoided by asking for help from a professional! That help, for me, happened to come in the form of medication. Who knows what might work for you?
