I Feel A Little Better and a Little Not Ok, I know it’s not an overnight fix but I do feel a little better. Granted, I’m writing this while laid in bed working from my computer, but I feel good.

Powering Through Day 1 – Postpartum Anxiety

Night or is it Day? It’s 11:50pm on Wednesday night, the day I went to the doctor. I don’t really know what to write about today that I didn’t write already. But, I guess I can sum up that I’m still awake because I’m scared. I’m scared to take Zoloft. There, I said it so now I can overcome it, […]
