Community is my favorite word.
Without the support of my family and community I’d be dead now. This is true for most people, and sharply-so for me.
I thrive because of the communities I am lucky to be a part of.
How about you?
Where are you from? Where do you live now? Do you miss home? Do you have a community to sustain you?
Where are you on your PPD/PPA journey? Are you making progress on your recovery?
I would love to know more about you. It’s OK to be shy, and it’s good to reach out. As much or as little as you feel comfortable. Please comment below. Your answers, rants, jokes, twitter handles, blog links, facebook pages, all welcome. And so are you.
More to love:
#PPDCHAT community on Twitter.
