(luckily I have mostly been able to keep up with the Mommy & Me Monthly Service Challenge and some other behind the scenes things)
Although, I feel very blessed to have it mostly under control, it still affects me on a small-ish level daily. I decided months ago to simplify as much as possible to help me through this challenging time. I removed as much as I could from my life so I could focus on myself and my family. This has helped tremendously, but I feel ready to jump back in the blogging game.
I have completed my first "come-back article" and it has been published on FamilyShare! I am excited to share it with you. It is called 8 lies that are keeping you from recognizing you have postpartum depression. I am hoping by debunking these myths, more people will realize that there is help for them.

I hope to be posting some 'silver linings' from my postpartum depression, soon... things I have learned from having PPD.
Until then, I am excited to be back blogging... I've missed you!
