Yes that one—->
It is my latest project.
Because I need more stuff going on, right?
Well, remember that phrase “if you want something done, ask a busy person”? Maybe it’s my goal to be “that” person. Except it’s not. I just need to get the word out about things that matter to me.
I am, what they call over at Postpartum Progress, a warrior mom. I fought a long arduous battle after Patrice’s birth against postpartum depression and anxiety.
It was hard.
But here I am, on the other side…
Thanks in huge part to on-line communities that understood and loved on me.
The first on-line resource I found was Katherine at Postpartum Progress. Her foundation provides so much information about the various postpartum mood disorders, including but not limited to, postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD and postpartum psychosis. She also provides active support for women looking for hope.
I was that woman. I found so much on her website that had me nodding my head, saying AHA!, and finding out I wasn’t alone.
Katherine is tireless and amazing in her work, she was even part of Jeopardy! question, but she can’t do it alone.
From her work and dream, was born Climbing Out of the Darkness. It is a walk/climb held in cities throughout the world to raise funding and awareness.
This year, I’m not letting it pass me by. I am leading a team! Eek.
June 21 we will meet at Independence Oaks in Clarkston from 1-3 pm. There are two of us on my team right now, but we need more. We need to make some noise. We need to be part of making a difference.
Won’t you please join us? You can raise funds or not, that is up to you, but we need awareness raised. We need to let other mamas know they are NOT ALONE!!!!!!
