Two years ago today, I started this blog with this post.  Last year, on my 40th birthday, which was also my first “blogaversary”, I posted this: When I was younger, I really wanted people to think I was beautiful, then I wanted them to think of me as smart, then I wanted to be funny,…

For Mother’s Day: The Pocket of Comfort invocation.

I hope you are having a lovely Mother’s Day. But this day is all kinds of hard. As is motherhood itself. Today (and everyday) it’s so tempting to measure your success as a mother by what you get from others. Hugs, cards, flowers… But are you measuring the love YOU give yourself? Are you giving yourself…

Imagine a safe haven of Self-Kindness and support for moms: A group in which all of our motherhood struggles are met with understanding, sisterhood, and hugs. Where we can safely spill our guts, ask questions, ask for ideas and commiseration, while knowing that we will not be judged, and not be given unsolicited advice. This group is a refueling…

Yuz takes off the mask

I am beyond thrilled to have my dear friend Yuz here today, all the way from Melbourne Australia. We met online through #ppdchat and fell in love with each other. We have so much in common, PPD and being Jewish are just the tip of the iceberg.  This post is about telling her story on her…

Instead of resolutions: a Permission Slip to Slip.

And the the giveaway winner is: Laura. Hugs to all who didn’t win this time, more chances coming soon. This post is dedicated to my beloved #ppdchat friends. I’ve been so consumed  with creating events and classes here in Ithaca, that I’ve been rather absent on twitter. I miss you all, I’ll be back soon….

Special #PPDSpeakEasy comfort camp

WTF world? Why so much pain? Too many people I love, most of them mothers, especially #ppdchat moms, are having a particularly hard time this week. I don’t usually use the F word here, not even as a letter. But something is going on. Is Mercury in retrograde? Are there storms on the sun? This isn’t funny….

My comfort zone at 40 and 1 year.

My birth mom never made it to 30. My beloved second mom is in her sixties, and makes it look very good. My over-40 friends make it clear that it’s a really good club to be joining. I am done freaking out about turning 40, and just in time. I’m going to be 40 in 2 hours. As…

Hope in a Phone Call

Yay! Robin is here! With her take on the #PPDSpeakEasy. Because she participated in many — she even hosted one! And because September will have triple the hope: I’ll be holding three  (3!) support chats, because it’s my birthday, and I am giving back to all of you. So Robin stopped by and invited her…
