Motherhood Was the Wakeup Call I Needed to Get Help for My Mental Health
During my first year of motherhood, I was physically present, but I wasn't all there mentally and emotionally. I felt nothing in extremes. No extreme joy, and no extreme sadness either. Considering most people alluded that as a new mom I'd be drowning in the "joy of motherhood," it surprised me that this wasn't the case. Most days, I felt like a zombie going through the motions.
