With the end of Climb Out Of The Darkness for Postpartum Progress my husband has started nagging me, “When are you going to finish your book?!”
That’s a very good question. I had told him I would finish when the Climb was over but even though I am an Alpha and somewhat of a Perfectionist with some OCD tendencies, I am also a huge Procrastinator! This is the main reason I do not write on my gardening blog anymore. In addition to this procrastination I am still rather busy with the upcoming Warrior Mom Conference in Boston, MA next month where I will be a MotherWoman Peer Facilitator and get to hang out with all the cool Warrior Moms. I also need to redo my CPR certification to renew my Personal Training Certification. There seems to always be something.
The most important thing though is getting back to my writing. I want to get my story out there. I want to help eradicate the stigma against Mental Illness by disclosing my suffering from the last 2 decades. I want my book to be perfect so when the opportunity came along to share part of my story, my Postpartum Depression and Anxiety story, I jumped at the opportunity (it also bought me more time to procrastinate on my book.)
I am one of 15+ women who are Contributing Authors for the upcoming book A Dark Secret: Real Women Share Their Trials And Triumphs Of Their Battle With Maternal Mental Health Illness. We all have come together to help other mothers know they are not alone. I am so elated to be doing this and officially become a book author. Three months after publication, I can release my own book (if it is done 😉 )
Below I am sharing what info I have to promote A Dark Secret: Real Women Share Their Trials And Triumphs Of Their Battle With Maternal Mental Health Illness:
