100th post …

Yesterday was my 100th post and I only realised it now when I checked my stats (I check stats- I also realise how pocket-protector that is)

I thought that was quite cool – and for me quite an achievement.

When I started blogging, I literally thought I was the only person in South Africa who blogged.

I had not even read a blog before I started blogging.  So more naive, just-crawled-out-under-a-rock is going to be hard to beat.

Blogging has been my therapy and saved me and my medical aid substantial psychiatrist fees, so for that I am thankful and Discovery thanks wordpress too.

I have boxes of anti-depressants I have not even opened … might need to start flogging them on http://www.gumtree.co.za soon.  Keep an eye on that site if you are interested in a few boxes of Lexapro, Cipralex, Zoloft and Eglonyl.  Can I legally sell them on gumtree??

I can’t tell you the thrill I get with every “hit” I see and how truly appreciative I am for every comment someone takes time to make.  Some days even the spam excites me.

Even if they are trying to sell me tablets to assist my erection, and panties to tighten my outer labia .  I take the time to read them all… panties arrive Tuesday.

My sense of worth grows with every “good job” comment I receive.  I am truly thankful that I do not feel so alone in this journey through motherhood.

I honestly give thanks that there are so many desperate, off-centered moms, who struggle every day like me – I know I should not be excited that there are so many dysfunctional people, but I am – I love not feeling so alone.

I am excited by our togetherness.  That soon we can outnumber the moms who have perfect hair, perfect nails and who bake cupcakes and who are excited to do arts and crafts.

Viva us, viva moms-who-do-it-differently-with-wine -as-a-prop!!!

      Let me just check what is left – I have not had Prozac for a while … do you think the expiration date is a serious date, or is just something to put on the box??

    You really “know your stuff”

    As a first-timer to motherhood, I must admit that I too am not a natural mother, but I try. And reading your thoughts, fears and feelings, makes me feel empowered to carry on being the best mom I can be.

    Great and thanks for this.

      Thank you, I feel a sense of accomplishment – much like I have birthed a child and just watched him/her take his/her first step …
