Hello my friend, been a while!
The last time I sat down and started writing, I had just gotten off of my antidepressants thinking they were making me lethargic, decided to do a podcast, baby turned into a toddler and then I doubled my hours at work and I may or may not have burnt myself out a lil bit. So anyway, here we are almost 2 years later.
I did attempt to write about a few things I was keen to discuss, which a few lovely people had recommended me writing about, however I found that I got in my head a little bit and scrapped them half way through and then got in my head a little bit about this whole “blog” thing and how I was dumb to think I could do this and then I scrapped the idea of writing all together and deleted the instagram.
While my anxiety was doing great things for me, my husband and I decided it would be a great time to have another baby and while I am balls deep in my second 4 month sleep regression and new diagnoses of post natal depression, I decided now would be a good time to get back into writing.
In all seriousness though, when I first had my daughter, I found it so hard and social media made it all look so easy and I just wanted to see something out there that made me feel less alone. I remember those first few months felt so isolating and so I turned to writing to help me through those times and through sharing these moments, I found that there were more people like me and people did actually feel this way and therefore I felt way less lonely. It was so nice to hear from people who were experiencing the same things as me and were able to relate and then too not feel so alone. Now that I have just had my second baby and I am feeling the weight of being a new mother once again, although absolutely beautiful, very full on, I have decided to give this writing thing a crack again to help myself through and hopefully in turn, be a reminder to someone else out there that you are not alone.
I have changed my font, played with a few different shades of beige and I am ready to go, but hang on because my baby just woke up from her 20 minute nap.
