With May being National Mental Health Awareness Month, I wanted to make sure and cover how mental health has affected me and how important it is to be not only aware of your mental state, but to get help when you are needing mental health support.
As you all know my childhood was not easy. All of the traumatic events that I endured affected me as an adult, and it in no way prepared me for the feelings that I would have after having my first child.
It is important to know that you are not alone in this battle. To help guide you in your journey, I will be talking about my battles, struggles, seeking the advice of a trusted doctor, postpartum depression, and the path I have taken and continue to take to help myself maintain a positive mental health state.
