“I wrote this piece as an exorcism. There was a long period of time where even the idea of putting pen to paper or fingers to keys was overwhelming and inconceivable. When I was finally able to step just far enough outside myself to know that I was no longer myself I found the courage to write and to ask for help. No matter who I was with I felt utterly alone and isolated – I wrote this piece in hopes that raw honesty would break the silence that alienates us as mothers.”
