If you’ve stumbled upon this blog most likely you know my story from Facebook. And if you’re new to my story, don’t worry, I’ll go in to all the details eventually that is my life being a new momma to a little boy with Barth syndrome. But not only am I a new momma, but a wife, friend, daughter, sister, aunt, coworker, who struggles to balance it all.
I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a long time now because I enjoy writing. The problem was I didn’t know where to start or if people would actually read it. Would people judge? Would people think I’m crazy? But lately Ive been thinking…. who cares. This is more for me than anyone else. And maybe. Just maybe another momma struggling with a medically fragile child or hell just any momma in general will stumble across this blog and know they are not alone.
You see, I have always struggled with depression and anxiety. Well with everything that has gone on in my life in the past three years it has gotten worse. Yes I’m on medicine. Yes I have a great support system. But I still struggle…. a lot. The one thing I haven’t tried is writing out my thoughts. To be honest I’m terrified. I’m a talker. Anyone who knows me knows this. But to bare all my thoughts and emotions for everyone to read… well that’s just down right terrifying. But my hope is that by writing out my worries, my struggles, my triumphs, it will help relieve some of the worry and anxiety I feel on a daily basis but also maybe help someone else along the way.
So ladies and gentlemen here I am. Baring it all for all of you to see. The good. The bad. And the ugly. I always tell people, I wish people could walk a day in my shoes… so come take a walk with me.
