My Postpartum Depression Story: Published by Scary Mommy

In November, I had the pleasant experience of getting my first article published by¬†Scary Mommy; the story that Scary Mommy wanted to feature was about my battle with postpartum depression–I want to share with you my postpartum depression story that was published by Scary Mommy. I knew how important it was to get my word across to every mom out there that was, at some point in her life, dealing with what I was going through.

And, this was the outlet that I was looking for to get my voice out about my battle. Truthfully, nobody besides my husband knew that I was struggling with PPD– I was kind of nervous for this to be out in the open. Holy moly. People will read this….and then what? Think I’m a bad mom? Think I’m a terrible person?

Then the anxiety kicked in….

So, the day came when my article came out and I sat back (with chewed fingernails) and awaited all of the responses– and trust me, I was ONLY expecting the worse.

Except, something kind of amazing happened. I didn’t read NOT ONE negative comment– instead, there was an outpouring of support and kind words. A few of my mom friends even reached out to me and expressed how they, too, suffered from PPD and how reading my story made them feel not alone.

Since my story has been seen by the world (or at least a lot of people), I became an advocate for moms that struggle with PPD and anxiety as well as mental health. I’m so fortunate that Scary Mommy gave me a chance to get my story out.

So, momma, I want you to know that Postpartum depression is REAL and you are not alone! I promise.
