My goal for 2018 was working on self-care and my mental health. So far 2018 has been if not worst than 2017. With lent among us, I have decided that I needed to let go and just let god handle everything instead of me trying to control every situation I come across.

Things like the microwave, or the refrigerator, etc. This Sunday my oldest helped me out a bit by vacuuming and sweeping as I wash dishes and cleaned the microwave.

So it's been awhile since my last post. Over a year to be exact. I kind of got lost and sucked into my own space continuum of sadness. POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION. It wasn't something that I immediately noticed. Let's be honest: you never really notice it at first because you are in denial. I was most … Continue reading It’s been awhile…..
The past month I've been thinking about how breastfeeding is portrayed as being so beautiful because it's so good for the baby. It is good for baby! Very good! It even affects their IQ score. But it is not pretty. I've had Mastitis 3 times in the last 22 weeks. My breast are always engorged. … Continue reading Breastfeeding is ugly
One thing a person can never say about me is that I am not a good mother. You call me fatherless, motherless, lonely, stuck up, or any other name in the book but you can't say I am not a good mother. I curse a lot, I have a temper, it takes me awhile to … Continue reading I am great mom because I was failed first….
