Thank You for All the Emails

I wanted to thank my readers for reaching out. It is really good to know that people are reading this blog and that it is helping you.

As I mentioned last month I was going through some postpartum depression which I think I am now really coming out of. And although I may not have been good at answering every email promptly ... I have been reading them and appreciate the support.

I've told my husband about how I get such nice emails from people I've never met and he said he gets why I started this blog -- it is kind of like a support group -- althogh support groups are a little more of a two way conversation.

Years ago before I moved to Naples I used to facilitate 3 DBSA groups a week. It was one of the best things I've ever done. It felt good to help people and also to be understood. But after two years of running 3 groups a week I was glad to get a break when we moved. It was a great experience but also very draining since I got lots and lots of phone calls from group members who needed to reach out -- sometimes at odd hours of the night.

If you haven't ever been to a DBSA support group -- please look for one in your area. Go here

If you need someone to talk to ... please feel free to email me at bipolarpregnancy @ gmail.com (remove the spaces).
