I’ve been keeping myself busy of late by writing for Yahoo7 about suffering depression through pregnancy.
I thought after writing the articles I would still have plenty of material for this blog. I was right, I do still have plenty of material.
What I didn’t anticipate was just how draining writing those articles would be. In an effort to make them as honest as possible I really had to dig deep and wade my way through all those horrible, heartbreaking thoughts that I was trying to escape. That took it out of me.
By the end of the process my mind felt like an emptied well. I found myself staring at the white screen of death and trying to think of a topic, failing, and then getting frustrated and angry at myself. And so the circle continued.
The tide had started the change, the black clouds have begun to dissipate.
Hopefully now I have more to add.
