Based in Glasgow, my blog was initially created, like so, so many blogs, after the birth of my child. It turns out, that having a child is stressful enough to prompt one, not only into dire mental health conditions, but also into seeking a voice for said mental health in order to prevent internal combustion.
I don’t remember reading any of that in the baby books.
Suffering from post natal depression I needed an outlet and a platform to shout that parenthood is tough, but it need not be a lonely place.
Openness, honesty, and humour, sarcastic humour, are my only tools in this parenting jungle.
Be aware, I swear. A lot.
