There is one thing I will stop in my tracks and respond to.
There is one thing I will never stop fighting for and writing about.
The very thing that makes some hide in shame and pull their world in even closer has become the one thing that I cannot be loud enough about.
Post Partum Depression. The shame, stigma, and isolation it can cause. The suffering of all involved.
One of the best predictors of PPD recovery is social support and a network of concern.
I'm grateful to be posting at PPD to Joy, the amazing Yael's site today, on what to do if you or someone you know is trying to make it through just another day. I was that someone barely hanging on 17 years ago, and now I am a PPD survivor. I made it through to the other side, something I wish for everyone. NEVER GIVE UP.
If you know of someone, please have them stop by. If you were that someone, please let others know that reaching out is the one best thing you can do for yourself right now.
Thank you so much for reading, and thank you, Yael, for having me.
Post Partum Depression is my 'something be be passionate about.'
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
