For the next couple of weeks, I am sharing the audio version of my memoir, Adventures with Postpartum Depression. I don't have the time or resources to put together a fancy-schmancy formal audio version (yet!) so instead, I'm sharing it on the podcast. In this installment, I read Chapter 13: The Great Escape and Chapter 14: The Eeyore Ward. These chapters describe more of my experiences in the psych ward and include my turning point, when I started to feel like myself again. Then I read Chapter 15: Breastfeeding Blues, which describes my return to "regular" life and my decision to end breastfeeding.

I hope to get this all done and shared by the end of June. If you can't wait to hear the rest of the book, head over to PPDadventures.com for your free copy of the ebook. Or head over to Amazon to get your ebook or paperback today to support my work. Thanks for listening!

In this installment, I read Chapter 10: Commitment Issues (which describes my admission to the hospital), Chapter 11: Welcome to the B Ward (which describes the beginning of my stay at the hospital) and Chapter 12: Am I Wearing A Sweatshirt?

I don't have the time or resources to put together a fancy-schmancy formal audio version (yet!) so instead, I'm sharing it on the podcast. In this installment, I read The Prologue, Chapter One: The Girl with Hypchondria (some back story about why I was anxious going into motherhood), Chapter Two: Love and Marriage (a little more backstory that helps understand my particular PPD journey) and Chapter Three: Let's Make A Baby!

The past few months, I have been working on improving my physical health. As strong as my mental health has been since I recovered from PPD, I know I will feel even better once I lose weight and reclaim my body. My thyroid is not working as well it should; my iron level is low; my cholesterol is way too high; but hey, my Vitamin D is tip-top. I'm also trying to shout less often at my children and slowly but surely making progress on that front. Later this summer, stay tuned for the podcast audio version of my memoir Adventures with Postpartum Depression, now available on Amazon. Email Courtney@PPDadventures.com if you would like to share your story on a future episode. Show notes will be available at PPDadventures.com. The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Thank you for listening and I hope you have a lovely week.

This Sunday, it's Mother's Day in the United States, and I felt inspired to share some thoughts and rants on the holiday. I talk about my first Mother's Day as a mom, which totally sucked, seeing as I was in the darkness of postpartum depression. I also talk about how one day is not enough to honor a mother. We should feel cherished throughout the year! My advice is to do what feels right for you on Mother's Day and to not compare your day to what you see on social media. (Staying off social media would not be a bad thing.) The intro music is "Cute" by Bensound.com. Email Courtney@PPDadventures.com if you would like to share your story on a future episode. My memoir, Adventures with Postpartum Depression, is now available on Amazon. Thank you for listening and I'll be back next week with another interview.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
