Scary Mommy: How Learning to Ask for Help Saved My Life

Scary Mommy

I’m really excited to share this on my page. An article that I wrote, that I wasn’t sure anyone would want, was picked up my Scary Mommy. It just went live, and I wanted to share it here with all of you.

This was not an easy piece to write, nor was it easy to share all of this openly, especially on the internet. But I knew I had to do it. I needed to let other moms know that they’re not alone, and that we need to feel open to discuss our struggles and ask for help.

  1. Wow, congratulations and thank you. Too many times mommas are scared to ask for help because they think they will be seen as failures. It’s exhausting to think that even though women go through the same stuff and have to deal with the same trials and tribulations that they still tend to try and compete and judge each other. Keep up the good work

    1. Thank you! It was liberating to share it, and I was honored by the platform. I wish we could make it easier for moms to reach out. Before I wrote that story, after I heard of the mother, I tried calling the suicide hotline. I was on hold for three minutes before I hung up. And I thought, “If I had been on the brink, that would have sent me over the edge.” We need to do better helping people.
