Being a mom is already hard. While we are trying to live up to everyone's expectations of us, we often forget about taking care of ourselves. I am a proud mom of a 3 year old and a one month old, and while I love them more than anything, I struggle day to day with crippling depression. There are all different kinds of depression and the level of severity can change from person to person and from day to day. I am no expert on the subject but I can offer an insider perspective of a mom who struggles with depression.
