Months. Months of waiting, praying, and pushing through the motions of caring for my child. Months, and mountains moved.
In the months following your daughter’s birth, you come to realize an important truth: being a mom with mental illness is not just hard. It’s impossible.
If you or someone you love has a chronic or mental illness, this post is for you. It’s for you if your physical, mental or emotional brokenness crushes your spirit. It’s for you if you’ve been to the best doctors that you can afford, and there’s nothing more that they can do. It’s for you if your treatment options are limited to the symptoms of your illness, not its cause. It’s for you if you’re tired of being tired, if you suspect that there’s more to the story than what you’re being told, if you feel like you’re out of choices and out of time.
