« Depression is a Lying Liar Who Lies | Main | Row Your Boat »

I’ve been reading your blog for almost 10 years - found your blog when I was in the throes of postpartum crazy. Needing to read something that sounded like my life. You inspired me back then to keep my head up, be kind to myself and love my babies with everything. Now my sons are going into the 4th and 5th grade and my role is changing as a homeschool mom.

You are amazing - I love your blog. You share your depression and believe me, I understand the darkness. I’ve fought it for years. Thank you for sharing this and for all of your inspiration.


Oh, wow, those are some big changes!


This post was a journey. I had the hubris on your behalf to start reading this as "how my life is getting easier," but life is never that way for long, is it! Good luck as you discover "what's next" and how that works for you and your family. Sending love.

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
