Untreated mental illness can lead pregnant women and new moms to take their own lives. Shame and stigma sometimes stop them from getting help in time.
Other moms would be waving to their kids at the school gates as I peeled into the parking lot. I couldn't figure out why, until I was diagnosed with ADHD.
Before I became a mom, I needed to end the cycle of discord and abuse in my life.
How can I offer a child a love that I've never received? Friends assure me becoming a mom is an instinct, but that feels too simple.
