It’s not easy to say this, but it gets easier every time I say it: I suffered from crippling postpartum anxiety after my son was born. It was the most terrifying time of my whole life. I honestly wasn’t sure I’d make it through.
Right now, at least, this is the best I’ve got. We are in a divided and angry time. We don’t want to admit it, but we’ve all been handed scripts that we’re expected to read off. When we’re angry and divided, we’re easier to control.
