After having my son in 2016, I was met with a severe case of anxiety. I was living 800 miles away from the comfort of my family and I felt more lost than I ever had in my whole life.
I had panic attacks, moments of inconsolable sobbing and extreme fear.
There was only so much I could confide in my husband because not only did I feel crazy but I couldn’t explain how I was feeling. It didn’t even make sense to me, so how could I express it?
This blog is for all Mamas. The crunchy moms who breastfeed their toddlers, the formula-feeding moms, working moms, stay-at-home moms, single moms, married moms, moms with wives, adoptive moms, grand-mothers raising children and so on.
All I needed to hear when I was struggling was that I wasn’t alone. I needed someone to relate to me, I needed someone to tell me that I was going to be ok and that I wasn’t crazy, I needed someone to have gone through what I went through or had the same irrational thoughts as me.
Now that I’ve had my second baby and don’t (thank God) struggle like I did the first time, I have a whole new set of struggles, questions and fears.
What I want for my readers is to hear real stories, real experiences and real life moments. Funny, sad, frustrating.
I’m an esthetician by trade and I love to cook, so I’ll throw some of that stuff in there too, because that’s a part of who I am and this is my daily life (not that I have time right now to put any recipes together or get a facial!!)
I hope you get a chuckle, maybe you’ll shed a tear, but I hope more than anything you feel like you have a friend because that’s exactly what I am. A really good mom friend.
