9 months

Reece was 9 months old on the 4th of July!

It’s currently 2am here so I’m going to be super quick with this update.

Things have been going very well. The anxiety in me has calmed down A LOT and I’m so happy to report that I’m starting to feel like myself again. Of course there are still days that are uncomfortable, but this is the up and down nature of recovery.

Reece is going great! He’s sitting, pulling up to his knees/standing and also standing without assistance for very short periods of time. He’s getting cuter with each day that passes and I realise how lucky I am.

Things are good.

    1. Aw I teared up reading this. It’s so hard. Parenting is difficult enough without a mental illness hanging over your head.

      It gets better. You can scroll back to some of my earlier posts and see how bad things were. I was so close to ending my life, it felt like this crushing weight on me and I felt like I couldn’t take it. But it gets better. My lord it gets better. I promise you.

      Do you have someone to talk to? A therapist? Remember to take time out for yourself. Acupuncture, walks with headphones, meditating. Anything you can do and just zone out for a little while. A massage is always a go to for me.

      I’ll always be open and honest because if even one person gets any sort of benefit from my posts, then they have done their job. Lots of love. I’m always here if you need a chat xx
