It’s been a very long time since I have blogged. Looking at this one in particular, one would think I have never written a blog post in my life. However, those ones would be mistaken. In case you’re curious, I used to write about my experiences with Postpartum Depression here: http://nicolesoutlook.wordpress.com/
If you feel like it, take a look. I used to write about everything I dealt with while suffering from PPD, and was very honest and straight forward. It was incredibly hard, but also incredibly liberating. Not only did it help me work through a lot of the thoughts I had on the topic, but it also helped some other women discover that they were not alone. I think that was the most rewarding aspect of it all.
So, you may be asking yourself, “Why this new blog, Nicole?”
I’m so glad you asked! My mental health issues now aren’t PPD, nor is it really depression anymore. I deal a lot now with some major anxiety, whether it’s social or just plain old intrusive, mind altering anxiety. The things that seem to help me move past them enough to function is music, and sharing.
So here it is. My new blog, where I shall spend time emptying my brain of all the clutter that is streaming around in an attempt to take my mind back. I liked my mind before it started changing. I would like to think I can attempt to regain some of that back.
Will you stick around? Will you follow me through this journey of nonsensical talking about whatever jumps into my head?
