What advice would you give to moms who are struggling with PPD?

GET HELP. Talk about it. Write about it. Tell someone about it.

When you're struggling with a physical or mental illness, how do you keep up with all the demands of motherhood?

I don't. I ask for help. Help is crucial.

What's a mood booster that helps you get through a bad day?

Music. I uploaded all my favorite stuff to Google Music so I can access it whenever, wherever.

Oh, and a Snickers/diet coke break.

What's your New Year's Resolution?


Because I am having Baby #2 in March, my New Year's Resolution is to ask for help when I am struggling this time around. Last time I tried to master hiding my insecurities and struggles and I ended up with a raging case of PPD. This time, I am going to slow down and recognize when I need help. And ask for it.
