Hi, bad muthas! Today I am the guest blogger on Black Box Warnings and I’d love it if you would click on over to read my essay. Black Box Warnings is a collective of bloggers who share their personal stories about mental and physical health, parenting, daily tribulations, and life’s little moments. There, you will find an on-line community built around support, respect, and compassion.
My contribution took me weeks to write. It’s called “When I Have Fears That I May Cease to Be.” I write about my experience with depression and anxiety during pregnancy–one of the darkest moments of my life. I got through that time with the help of drugs, therapy, support and compassion. It’s tough to talk about these things on the wide-open internet, but more good comes from telling the truth than from keeping up a facade.
