The Writing Journey

During the past few weeks, I have visited a number of blogs and on-line sources about postpartum mood disorders.  There is a great deal of information out there!  I feel as if an entire world has suddenly opened up to me.  Oddly enough, while numerous blogs and support groups have existed in the cloud of cyberspace, I have sat at my computer typing, revising and editing for the last 14 months.  And as I poured my experiences from my mind, through my keyboarding fingers and into my memoir, I have felt such a sense of accomplishment, satisfaction and catharsis.  Yet, writing can be an isolating and relatively lonely experience.  Knowing now that there are so many blogs about this topic, I feel a sense of connection to the many other women writing about this topic, and I look forward to sharing my story, my journey, my dance on the edge of sanity…

Currently, I’m in the final editing stages and working with a self-publishing company.  If you would like a sneak peek at the book, excerpts are linked as pages.

    Dear Ana Clare,
    Your blog is incredibly informative and very heartfelt. Your writing flows like a river. You are a gifted writer and it is with great pleasure that I thank you for this honest and much needed information. It is extremely sad that PPD or PPA is looked upon as anything other then what it really is… a real live disorder. You are an angel, and you will help many along your path. As a mother myself, of two girls, 28 and 22, I now realize how very fortunate I was not having to endure this tortuous disorder. My heart goes out to you more then you know. Having a baby “should” be the happiest and fulfilling time in a Mother’s life. But the truth of the matter is that this is not so for 100% of us Moms. I’m not sure what the statistics are to this disorder but even if 10,000th of one percent of women experience this, then I thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing the awareness to the forefront! Stay steadfast in your plight.. I cannot wait for your book to be published. I will be first on line to purchase a copy.
    Karen Smith
