3 Reasons Why Reading Romance is Good for my Mental Health

  1. I struggled with depression before I had kids. Then I had my first and my postpartum had me ready to throw in the towel. Reading definitely saved me and helped me to come back from going all the way over the edge. I second that it can definitely be a struggle to get the help that you need.

    I never knew how therapeutic getting lost in a romance or books with happy endings/feels was until I started back after my daughter was born. Books really do save lives!

  2. Looking back, I think I had postpartum depression that was never diagnosed. I was divorced and a single mom by the time my son was three and daughter was one. Working full time with a 40 min commute each way, dropping and picking up from day care, I was so stressed. I fell apart at work one day, literally couldn’t stop crying, so tired, only $25 a week to feed us, etc. it was at that point I started seeing a therapist to get help. The balancing act is hard. Take care of YOU.
