I was just thinking to myself, that I wanted this blog to be a humorous insight in to the life of a SAHM (stay at home mom). Not a Leave it to Beaver version a real life one.
Not one you’ll see perfectly “pinned” on pinterest, just a normal mom with crazy kids and struggles.
Then I started noticing I was writing and posting a lot of the negative. A lot about self injury, and depression.
I got to thinking perhaps I should make a separate blog, one for the funny SAHM stuff and one for the SI(self injury) stuff. Because really not only do I write about SI and depression to help myself, but hopefully in some small way help others.
But then I got to thinking. I’m sure there are MANY mothers out there, (fathers too) who fight these demons everyday while raising a family. On their good days (weeks, months, hours) they may even have the crazy and often very horrid sense of humor I have.
While depression doesn’t define me, it is a part of me. Just as the choices I have made, the paths I have taken, depression, anxiety and SI make me who I am today. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to fix these parts of me, but parts of me they are.
So as for now this blog will stay as is.
I hope you stay with me and continue the journey.
