One of the new features over at The Muser’s Musings Musings Musings blog, which I’m so glad to have found recently, is a weekly round-up of PPD bloggers and what they are writing about, including those who are currently suffering from PPD and need support. The Muser’s goal is to provide an online community for PPD sufferers because when she herself was recovering from PPD, she could not find a single one. I wish I had known about all the online resources when I too was suffering from PPD.
Many if not all of us who are currently blogging about PPD want to empower other moms and their families with the knowledge of what PPD is and to provide support because we have been through it personally and know EXACTLY what it’s like to have suffered from it. Many if not all of us had horribly lonely experiences, as we thought we were the only ones who were suffering rather than enjoying motherhood. We’d all love to see everyone understanding what PPD is and getting the help they need, rather than suffering unnecessarily in silence. We’d all love to see the stigma and fear that come from ignorance of the topic disappear completely one day. What we are doing are steppingstones to that….we truly and sincerely hope. Odds would greatly increase the more people speak up about their experiences!
If you don’t already know about the Muser’s blog, please visit it now and check out the blogs of these wonderful ladies. If you are currently suffering from PPD, you will find comfort in the words of other moms sharing their experiences. If you are a PPD survivor, feel free to share your own experiences by commenting on those blogs.
