Go down the rabbit-hole of hormone-induced mental illness and back again with a woman who survived postpartum depression through fanfiction addiction and found the clarity to confront the everyday demons of a troubled marriage, inadequate healthcare, and unattainable ideals of motherhood. This is the partially true story from an utterly unreliable narrator of how our culture fails mothers in their most desperate and vulnerable state.
Targeted Age Group:: 25-45
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was written while I was suffering from postpartum depression after the birth of my second child. It's how I got through it, really. Every time something terrible happened, I reminded myself that I could use it as inspiration for this book.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
All characters are exaggerations of real people.
Apparently, as long as I continue to feed my children, there’s nothing wrong with me. A functional mom is one who can change a diaper and remember bedtimes. I’m not falling apart, so I’m fine. My mom can continue to shrug and my husband can continue to horde fencing estimates and I’ll just have to force myself to get up every day, brush my teeth, get at least one household chore done, and pretend that I’m not questioning the very purpose of human existence.
