FLYing Through Fog

Baby StepsGood Morning FlyLady!

Boy, typing those first two words (good morning) is a really big deal. I was writing to say thank you. I’m a three-month-old  FlyBaby and I found your site in a dark hour of desperation.

You see, I suffer from postpartum depression which, for me, includes insomnia (among other things). Because of this, I sometimes walk around my chaotic house in a foggy haze, not knowing what to do with myself or where to “start.”

I am under a doctor’s care, however, there’s no one to come home with me and hold my hand to help me complete even the simplest tasks, like getting dressed in the morning. Since I’ve been following your babysteps, it’s like you’re there holding my hand, and encouraging me along the way. You remind me not to beat myself up for the things I haven’t accomplished, and you praise me for small efforts that are becoming the foundation of my new routine.

Today was a really good morning for me! Thank you.
