About Me

My name is Carrie, and I'm a new mom to a beautiful little girl who I call M on this blog. I first had a panic attack in February 2010. I spiraled down in a dark place where I felt hopeless and worthless all the time. I avoided my daughter at all costs out of fear that I would somehow traumatize her because I was such a bad mother.

I spent six weeks in an out-patient treatment program and since then I've still been trying to recover from postpartum depression and the effects of PTSD. My goal with this blog is to journal my feelings in this process and also to provide resources for other moms who might be going through similar experiences.

While things have been difficult, I'm so blessed. My husband, L, is beyond supportive. My daughter is an absolute delight. I have great friends and family. I know I will come through this.
