In 2016 I was diagnosed with depression.
My boys were 2 and 4 at the time.
In hindsight, I had Post Natal Depression but did nothing about it. I truly thought that the way I was feeling was ‘normal’ and, ‘This is what Mum-Life is like so suck it up and get used to it!’
Anyway, turns out that this diagnosis was a defining moment in my life!
Which was a hard pill to swallow. Excuse the pun!
Who really wants their life to be defined by their depression? Not me.
But as I look back at my life, all 38 years of it, it was my depression that brought me to re-evaluating my life.
