It’s okay to feel bad

Even if you don’t want to.

Some of you may know I have two blogs.  One for my art and one for my battle with postpartum anxiety/OCD.  I’m considering combining them.  For right now I’d like to share an art journal spread that started out as something very different, but sums up how I felt and still feel at times.  It’s okay to feel bad, depressed, angtry, afraid, or any other negative emotion when you’re battling a postpartum mood disorder.  If you need to, call someone.  If you’re negative thoughts are spiraling down and you’re considering harming yourself (the news of Robin Williams’ passing by apparent suicide has brought the topics of both depression and suicide  to everyone’s minds), please call 911.  Do not suffer alone.

“I don’t want to be afraid.”

  1. Releasing negative emotions can be a useful coping mechanism in my experience. Sometimes it’s like throwing up poison instead of digesting it.
    I wish you all the best with your challenges. 🙂
