|Savannah at almost 5 yrs. and Cassidy at 5 mos.|
But, before Cassidy, there was quite a lapse with no communication here...I have been pretty private about it, and I don't plan to elaborate about it now. But, in the last couple of years. I have finally come to realize and attempt to deal with my depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, the pregnancy didn't help my condition much, and I am currently finding my way out of post-partum depression. Thankfully, I have an incredibly supportive husband, great doctor, and a great determination to get back to the self that I remember before I felt paralyzed by this stuff.
I am realizing now that turning away from things that once made me happy, like photography, although it can also ramp up my anxiety too, is not the answer. I need to keep doing the things that make me, me, and do my best not to let my depression and anxiety run my life. I think that this blog may even be somewhat therapeutic in that respect.
So, there it is...I have broken my silence about something not many even know about me, and I shouldn't feel ashamed of. Anyone else out there been through this and care to share?
