Absolutely incredible. This is faith.
You out this so perfectly. I'm so glad I found your blog!
This is a topic I have battled over and over, as my husband and I always wanted a second child and I now do not feel that I am fit to have more. This really helped me feel less alone in that mental battle. Thank you.
After reading a terrific article by Therese J. Borchard on PsychCentral entitled Should You Have Kids If You’re Depressed?, I was inspired to write a comment. The comment grew so long that I made it into a post:
I have three adult children. My first child was born when I was eighteen. My problem wasn’t just depression, it was psychosis.
Back in 1967 when I was fourteen years old, I had a mental breakdown after living through a series of extreme childhood traumas. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder did not become an official psychiatric diagnosis until 1980, so I was diagnosed with acute schizophrenia instead. My abusive mother then jumped at the chance to get rid of me by putting me in a state mental institution — against my doctor’s advice and despite the fact that my behavior was never out of control or threatening in any way.

As someone who still lives in the home I was abused in. I applaud your bravery. You have courage beyond words.

I am editing it to both redact names and such, as well as adding more information because I think it needs to … Continue reading Through The Ghost
One of my alters is pulling away. My life and how it functions is untenable to who she is and what she needs. I love her, so much. So do a few other people in my life, those she has trusted enough to let in. I don't know what will happen now. I'm afraid. Not … Continue reading Little Girl Gone
Day 17: Something that feeds your soul. It is ironic and serendipitous that this should be the prompt that brings me back, and I slowly trudge my way out of a deep dark pit, crawling my way through the muck. I haven't had internet for months now. I am writing this on a semi functional … Continue reading #LoveMe Challenge Day 17: Something That Feeds Your Soul
