As many of you know, I have been struggling with my depression for a while. I restarted seeing my therapist again, and have had a few really intense sessions and have realized that I have been using the internet as an escape.
This Winter, I managed to completely isolate myself from IRL friends, and now that it's Spring I have to stop doing this.
So, I am leaving girlmom.
I started on girlmom when I was four months pregnant. I hadn't told my parents yet, I was scared out of my mind. I was on the boards for a few months, and then left, coming back on right after Zoe was born. So, it's been almost three years.
I can't tell you what girlmom has ment to me over the years. Support when there was none, sholders to cry on when there were no others. I have sat at the computer and laughed my ass off and cried. I have "watched" mama's give birth and our kidlets grow up. I have made friends that I hold near and dear to my heart.
I have seen girlmom as a community grow and grow, overcome everything that's been thrown at it, and I know that it will continue to do so.
I hope you women know what an effect you have on other women's lives on this site. You all are seriously the reason that I kept going sometimes. You are all awesome, amazing mamas.
