5.) How has social media changed you?
It has only changed me for the better. I could tell you all about my previous obsession with myspace, or how I currently check facebook 5 times a day. I tried tweeting once, but it just wasn't for me. My blog though, my blog is the best social media I could have ever asked for.
My blog offers me a chance to document all the important things in my life. Like when Aiden was born, I shared it online for all the world to see. I was able to type up my birth story while it was still fresh in my mind for him to read one day. I have been able to share his growth with everyone, and in the same respect watch my online friends' children grow up too!
Most importantly though, my blog has given me support and encouragement. When I first started struggling with PPD and PPA there was a whole community of ladies who loved me and offered me help and prayers. It worked, I felt that by sharing my story and stress maybe I could be helpful to someone else. I felt overwhelmed by the out pour of strangers who genuinely cared.
Lately I have been feeling extremely blessed again. There have been some tough things going on in my life/marriage and after months of keeping it all in I shared it with my online friends. I don't know why I didn't sooner, because instead of people judging me/us/my husband, I have received a ton of emails and comments telling me they are thinking of me, don't give up, prayers are sent my way. I haven't been to church regularly, but in times of need my blog seems be like a church family, lifting me up and holding my hand. I couldn't have asked for better.
