My journey towards motherhood has been anything but easy. We battled 5 years of infertility and illness to conceive amid anxiety and depression. I sit here now as a mother, my dreams have come true, yet each day has been a battle as I have been hit with the full force of Postnatal Anxiety. It makes no sense and complete sense to me. This website is my way to acknowledge my journey and work through the mayhem of my mind.
Through this blog I hope to share my day to day struggles and wins with brutal honesty and to reflect on my journey here and my hopes for the future. I promise to be open and vulnerable for my sake as well as yours and to never stop trying to be a better person, wife, mother and friend. I’m grateful for everyone that will follow along with my journey, for the people within the village around me that provide so much support and for my son who gives me a reason each day to be better, to accept help and to persevere.
To the anxious mum who is desperately searching the internet in the middle of the night hoping to find information or a story of someone experiencing similar things, If you’ve received a search match to a post of mine I have to believe there is a reason for that if only to say that I’ve been there, I am there, I hope you can glean a small portion of validation for the difficulty you are in and that you are not abnormal, or bad at this, it is just truly hard and that is ok.
Start at the start (When Ive written a post about my history I will link it here), or start with the blog topics that interest you, either way lets just keep taking it one day at a time.because thats as much as I can handle right now.
