Blog Resurrected

May 30, 2018

It’s been a while, reader, but I’ve decided to resurrect this blog. Blogging tapered off for various reasons after Karl and I got married and as Agnes got older, mostly because I wanted to focus on the transition to married life and motherhood. As I settled into our new rhythm of life, writing about it crossed my mind now and again but then something would distract me and I’d push the thought aside. At first I felt guilty for letting this blog linger pestles. I eventually came to terms with my blogging days being over.

I decided to write again for a couple of reasons, but mainly for therapeutic purposes. We now have three beautiful daughters, and I have postpartum depression for the second time. Since I have been through this once before you would think I’d be a pro at managing it, but I’m not. Not even close. I’m hoping that writing about postpartum depression will help me work through it* and perhaps help other moms who might be struggling with PPD. It can be very lonely and isolating; it’s reassuring to know you are not alone.

When talking to Karl about starting to blog again, he asked what it was going to be called. I told him I was going to stick with the same title. It’s one of the most difficult things for me to do right now: laugh at the days to come, knowing that it might be one overwhelmed with postpartum depression. I’m working on it.

*Please note: Just because I am writing about my journey with postpartum depression, doesn’t mean I want to talk about it. If you know me in real life, please refrain from prying further, unless you are in need of postpartum support.
