Six years ago this month found me struggling to find help for my first episode of Postpartum OCD. I came across Katherine’s site shortly after she started it as the only sources of help I ended up with were virtual. I found the Online Postpartum Page and the iVillage boards to be helpful as well. But never did I think I would end up a blogger like Katherine. Heck, back then I had no idea what a blog was, to be completely honest. (Oh, how the times have changed!)
I went back and read Katherine’s first post. Her goal? That Postpartum Progress help in some small way.
In her birthday post this past week, she writes:
I have now spent six years with postpartum depression, figuratively speaking. Six years writing about every aspect I can think of.
And I love it.
Thank you for reading. I hope it can continue to help women who seek answers and support.
I, for one, cannot WAIT to see what the next six years bring for Katherine.
And Katherine – you have done SO much more than just help in a small way. Your contribution has been tremendous. Because of you, women are bravely voicing their experience with Postpartum Mood Disorders (myself included). Because of you, more and more are aware of Postpartum Mood Disorders. Because of you – there is hope. Thank you.
