Thank you all for your responses to my last post. Your thoughts and words mean so very much to me. I'm glad that I have this place in which I can express myself so honestly, and be heard. And I'm touched that so many of you shared your own stories with me. As women and mothers, we need to be able to reach out to others, to tell our stories, to allow ourselves to be heard. So, thank you.
I'm doing fine really, most of the time. Every now and then there is a scary moment, but I have to remind myself often that one bad day doesn't mean that I've slipped back into depression. I think many of us can find ourselves guilty of feeling like if things aren't stellar all the time, then something must be wrong. But it is truly what we choose to do with very ordinary, dull days (not just spectacular, special ones) that makes us the strong and beautiful people that we all have the potential to be.
