A Blog for Mom’s Struggling with Their Mental Health

ABOUT ME

Hey, y’all! I’m Rhiannon (middle name), and welcome to Each Passing Day. 

I’m a single mom with two small kids, Aiden and Addie, and two big dogs, Ariel and Rojo. They four shake up my life and keep me busy with cleaning (or trying to), playing, and general mom stuff. 

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with Bipolar II. Before the diagnosis, it was about a year of pure hell. Even with the support of my family and my best friend, I still felt alone. It wasn’t their fault, though, because there was nothing they could do. You can only “pep talk” someone so much. It got to the point where not only did I feel like my general failure in life was a burden on them, but just talking about it was annoying. I get it. I do, but it’s a shitty feeling. 

During this time, I would spend hours upon hours of scrolling through Facebook in groups. And I saw posts of other moms and women talking about their depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I hardly saw anyone talk about some other more “taboo” illnesses. Then I saw a story floating around about a young mom that killed herself because she didn’t have anyone to talk to, and she was alone with her kids. 

It makes me so happy that I have a support system, and I know I would be dead without their patience. But, I know that some other women and mothers don’t have the support. They feel like there’s no other way, so they hurt themselves and sometimes their kids. 

I know that even in my time, I still felt utterly alone. So, my goal for Each Passing Day is to give mothers a space to REALLY talk about their mental health in a healthy and loving space with other women. 

I want to find a way to be able to connect y’all with affordable health providers. Or help you organize a plan for when you’re having a bad day. I promise to be authentic in my content and give you a real picture of what life is like with a mental illness. 

 

RANDOM FACTS

  • I love Winnie the Pooh. All of my clothes and accessories would be Pooh-themed if I could afford it. In fact, one of my favorite songs, Gooey by Glass Animals, caught my ear just because they mention Pooh Bear. 
  • I’ve never seen Star Wars (but I always remember May the 4th), Star Trek, Game of Thrones, or a lot of pretty popular shows/ movies. 
  • I think New Girl is better than Friends. I’m in love with Nick Miller
  • I have a massive amount of mom guilt for not being as successful as I think I should be. 
  • I’ve never read 1984, Wicked; there’s a ton more that I know most people read in high school, and I just never did. 
  • Before my kids, I used to go on rollercoasters and airplanes regularly, but now I’m terrified. 
  • I HATE PICKLES. 
  • My dog, Ariel, saved my life. Even if she’s a huge pain in the butt, she’s always the first one to keep me safe when I have bad days. She’s truly a guardian angel. 
  • Insidious and Insidious 2 are the best movies ever.
  • And That’s Why We Drink is the best podcast ever. 
  • My favorite activities to do with my kids are coloring and playing UNO. 
  • I love to print stuff. I love all kinds of school supplies. It’s the best kind of shopping. 
  • I have a tattoo behind my left ear that was for a guy, but everyone says it looks like the logo for the “Kingdom of Hearts” video game, so I just roll with that.
