I Have a Counselor!

And its okay if you have one too.

I used to think that I didn’t need counseling, that my mental health was… what? I never talked about mental health. I didn’t know what it was. Welcome to the club, right?

Well, now that I am suffering from the aftermath of postpartum psychosis, bipolar affect, shock, and the trauma of losing my children for three months I am acutely aware of how important mental health is, how difficult it is to maintain, and how being open about it with a counselor can help.

So, if you have a counselor (that you see via the internet these days) know that you are not alone and that its a good thing to seek help for your mental health. Its step one, in fact, and arguably the most important step.

Stay safe out there. And thank your counselor.

  2. Hi there! My name is Dyane Harwood and I came across your blog because I have postpartum bipolar disorder. That’s awesome about your counselor; my counselor Ina was absolutely essential when I was acutely sick, and then later on as well.

    I have two girls, and I’m the author of “Birth of a New Brain–Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder.” If you’d like a complimentary PDF copy of my book for yourself (and/or for your followers) please feel free to email me: dyane@baymoon.com

    Thanks for raising awareness about the importance of counselors and postpartum mood disorders in general, & take care! 🌈🌻
