Stay Out of the Pit, Mom.

I’m only seven months in, but I think I’ll be trying to process motherhood for a long time. The deep sadness and despair I felt for the first three weeks is something I will never fully understand, and I hope I never go through it again. It is strange, isn’t, moms? How we bring brand new, beautiful life into the world, and some of us spend the next 1-12 months so utterly DEPRESSED? I don’t get it. I really don’t. We went through a battle of sorts, we shed blood, we experienced trauma, but…my family is safe and healthy. I didn’t experience war. I have HELP. I am not ALONE....
