This year I'm participating in my first UBP hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!
I'm a 22-year-old first-time mom to a little boy who was born in October of 2011. He's going to be 18-months-old in about 2 weeks' time and I can't believe it went by so quickly! He's obsessed with Yo Gabba Gabba, Mickey Mouse Club, dipping his food in ketchup, and opening the garage door for me (also, any buttons available).
I haven't posted much about it yet, but shortly after my son was born I went to be seen for Postpartum Depression and learned that I have Major Depression and General Anxiety Disorder--I was sort of upended learning that the way I have felt my whole life wasn't normal, but I'm trying to learn to actually feel better. I avoid public situations as much as possible and don't even feel all that comfortable with one-on-one situations with my closest friends. I'm not good with conversation, have a crippling fear of embarrassing myself, and have to give myself a pep-talk to make phone calls (among other things), but I've never known anything different. Having a name for it just makes me feel weird.
Honestly, there's so much I could say here that I don't know what to include! I don't want to ramble. ;) Sorry that it took me a minute to put this up, I got preoccupied with food being thrown around the living room. Totally didn't eat the grapes off the floor, either, if that's what you're thinking (I actually did, though).
