It’s been almost a year since my last post.  A year of living in a dark hole that I thought I would never be able to claw my way out of.  But I did, and this has since turned into one of the most amazing years of my life.

I have struggled with how much of the last two years I felt comfortable sharing with the entire world.  With family, friends, co-workers, strangers.  Will people think I am crazy?  A bad Mom?  A drama queen?  But the more I share my experiences from my (almost) 2 years of Motherhood, the more healed I feel.

So here it is, I’m coming out of the Mommycloset:  I have been battling Postpartum OCD, Anxiety and Depression for the last 2 years.  And I’m tired of pretending that nothing happened, not so much because I want people to pity me, but because I want to celebrate how far I’ve come and how amazing I feel now.

So I think I’m going to start blogging again and tell my story.   I want to purge the sadness and dance in the sunshine.

  1. Go you, Sierra! I think this will help to heal you as well as others who have suffered. I feel like postpartum situations are always named and not described which keeps people that experience them feeling in the dark and alone. And who knows, once you’re back out dancing in the sun, maybe someday you can look to the cloudy days and laugh at something seemingly silly or just smile with how far you’ve come. 🙂

  2. Dude, I am so proud of you. Depression is a terrible thing, and I’m glad you’re feeling like you can write about it–I’m no expert, but I’m a big proponent of the health-boosting properties of writing about difficult situations.

    I hope things just keep getting better, and that you remember that the rough days are just temporary dips in the upward trajectory of your life.

  3. Love!! Always better to talk about it because it is nothing to be ashamed of 🙂 Everyone goes through periods of it and it always makes people feel better knowing they are not the only ones having a bad day, month or year(s)!!! You rock Sierra
