Thank you. Really. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your e-mails and comments. I keep reading them and they are helping me feel better knowing I’m indeed NOT alone and I can get through this.

So, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’ll be back soon. Local peaches are almost on here in Utah and I have loads of recipes I’m dying to try. (And I need to start experimenting with my new camera.) Soon, friends, soon.

XOXO

  3. We have been eating peaches like crazy. I just stand over the sink and let the dribbles fall. Utah peaches are the best!

    I don’t know if there is such a thing, but I had pre-birth depression that was very real. “What am I doing having children?” “I am ruining them all.” etc. etc.
    no energy, deep sadness, anger…etc.

    My children all survived and I did too, but you don’t see it at the time.

    Much love to you and yours. I always found the Psalm of Nephi comforting. nano

  4. Hi Lindsey,
    It was indeed so brave of you to share that with all of us. I can’t wait until you come back…when you’re ready and looking forward to it, of course :)

    take care,

  5. I send you my very best wishes. Never had PPD (never had kids) but I have had depression — it runs in the family. Hang in there, you will get through this and life will get better, much better.

    And, enjoy the peaches! I find it helps to try to enjoy those small delightful moments in life, and not beat yourself up about what you’re not doing. (It’s so hard to get anything done when you’re depressed. And I hear it’s awfully hard to get things done with new babies and small children around.)

    So, even if you just eat the peaches over the sink like nano*ink, be sure to give yourself a pat on the back for enjoying them!

  6. Ok, I’ve been off the blog-reading circuit for awhile, and I’m trying to catch up reading stuff tonight…like your blog.

    ((hugs)) to you. You are strong to face the PPD and work through it. It’s so easy to ignore and keep trudging ahead, miserable and blind.

    I hope you can make it to the Blogger’s LNO tomorrow night. One of my other friends is going through PPD and will be there.

    You are brave. You can do it. And you’re not alone in this.

  7. I just came across your website and thinks it’s wonderful. I’m so sorry to hear you are having a struggle and I look forward to hearing more from you, here in this great space, when you’re ready to be back. Good luck with everything….

  8. Thinking of and saying a prayer for you, pal!

    Our Colorado peaches are just in and scrumptious. I eat at least 2 a day and love it.

    God bless summer produce!
