Great Article Julie. This is the second one I am glued to in a day. You write so well and nail it right there on the topics you choose.
Motherhood is really an uncontrollable rush of emotions at every stage and at every point. Me too felt like my world falling apart during and after pregnancy and I am still picking up the pieces of my identity.
This is when, I start thinking how did our mothers and their mothers had the guts to bear and raise more then one baby. One of my aunts has 10 kids all grown up and married now, but how exactly did they manage all the rush of hormonal and emotional imbalance and came out winners every time.
