THE STORY:

As most of you know I am a survivor!  Postpartum Depression hit me badly.  I've always had a history of Depression but after my beautiful daughter was born nearly 7 1/2 years ago I experienced Depression like I never have before.  PPD landed me in the short-term psych ward at my hospital for 12 days.  After that I had a 2 year struggle with therapy and medication to get me back to "normal".  It was at the suggestion of my therapist to start hiking and since then I have become an avid hiker at the intermediate level!

I am proud to say, today, I am the strongest I have ever been mentally & physically!!!

Please help support me on this 5+ mile hike and lets erase the stigma!

Below is more about my cause:

Climb Out of the Darkness is the annual awareness raising and fundraising event for Postpartum Progress, a nonprofit focused on supporting pregnant and new moms with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, postpartum OCD, postpartum psychosis and pregnancy depression. Also, Climb Out of the Darkness kicks ass. Just so you know.

 

You don't necessarily have to climb a mountain, by the way, to join in.

  • You can ride a mountain bike on a trail.
  • You can do a nature walk.
  • You can hike a mountain trail or walk along the beach. You can stand outside  and let the sun shine on your face.

 

No matter what you do, we still call it your Climb, because it is a symbol of your climb out of the darkness of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, whether you are a long-time survivor or someone who is still climbing or someone who cares about the health of pregnant and new moms.

 

Help us raise money so that we can continue to raise awareness of how women are devastated by perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, make sure women know what they need to know about PPD, eliminate stigma and support the mamas who need it.

 

And now to get climbing!
