Postpartum Elation

Postpartum Elation

“Are your prayers different?  Now that you’ve been healed,” my partner asked me one morning. “What?” I really didn’t know what he was talking about. He explained: “I mean, you were depressed. But since our daughter’s birth, you haven’t been.  No meds.  No sadness.  It’s a miracle!” In a way, he was right.  The sadness, weariness and desolation of my nine plus months of pregnancy seemed to evaporate the moment our daughter was born. I was … happy.  And I stayed happy.  I was sustainably happy. At first, it was the...

Depression is Lying

Depression is Lying

Depression is lying. Not all the time, but … well … a lot of the time. Because most people don’t want to hear more than “Fine,” when they ask: “How are you?” I lied throughout my pregnancy.

Isn’t Lent Depressing?

Even I ask myself: How can someone who lives with depression like such a depressing time of the church year? Lent is my favorite liturgical season.  I’m not exactly sure why. I did and did not grow up understanding that many Christian churches follow something called a church calendar.  My early years were spent in black Baptist churches that celebrated Easter and Christmas as holy days, but large swaths of spirituals, Sunday school and a row of black-suited deacons in-between. In Catholic elementary school, I learned about Advent,...

Why I Love Rebecca Walker’s Baby Love

I like memoirs.  In fact, when I have the time, I read them voraciously.  Because I need them.  I need to know someone else’s story to better know my own.  I need to know that someone else, somewhere, has experienced some part of what I am living.  Has experienced it and come out on the other side.  So I read memoirs.  And I read them with a hunger akin to desperation. Because I had read memoirs about depression, I feared the combination of depression and motherhood.  Or more aptly, I feared the combination of depression and...
