I’d like to thank the author of the profile, Dr. Laurie Hollman. She’s a wonderful advocate for women’s perinatal mental health. Some of her previous articles contain interviews with women living with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Dr. Hollman’s new book,ย Unlocking Parental Intelligence: Finding Meaning in Your Child’s Behavior, receivedย rave reviews and it’s super-afffordable on Amazon. Her website is here, and on Twitter she’s at:

Thanks again for taking the time to support this article. It means A LOT to me, as my publisher Post Hill Press will be checking it out. Like I mentioned, I’ll owe you one!

    • We are both forces, are’t we?
      And I can think of a few of our other friends that are most definitely forces – good ones all!

      Thanks so much, my sweet Claya.
      It feels truly wonderful to have writers/advocates/amazeballs like you on my side!!!!!!

  2. Reblogged this on Just Plain Ol' Vic and commented:
    Dyane has been there for me since day 1 of my blogging journey, so how could I not support her?! Please give her post a look and more importantly, click on the link and take a look at the article written about her. Comment..share…boom!

    • Thanks, my beautiful Michelle! I hope that some people who read the article will note the Postpartum Support International resource because PSI is truly amazing!

    • Hi Janet! I don’t have a Facebook account (gasp! I know….) – I know this is audacious to ask, but is there any chance you could do it on any of those on my behalf? I’d be grateful!

      • Posted on my timeline and about four support groups. The Blogher page is “Write a Post for Blogher,” second listing when you roll over your profile pic. Just copy your blog text and paste it as the body.

      • Janet, you are truly an angel!!!! Thanks for posting on your timeline & the other support groups, & for the Blogger info. – I’m scared, isn’t that silly? But I’ll go for it! After all, you know I’m used to rejection, as the thicker-skinned “Lizard Lady”! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Thanks mucho, my friend! I don’t use Facebook anymore, although I borrow Craig’s when I have to do it! I deactivated my Freakbook account last year and I have no regrets. Maybe I should tweet the article to my big brother Stephen Fry letting him know he has a younger sister named FRYANE!

  3. Congratulations Dyane! On this article and on your recovery! I am sharing your post and am so happy for you! Merry

    • Dear Merry,

      I’m thrilled to read this comment, & thanks a million for sharing the post!!

      I’m hooked on your new book “Finding Your Emotional Balance” – I love the profiles of the different women and your clear, compassionate, insightful writing style. I feel a 5-star Amazon review brewing in my head…..stay tuned!

      I’ll keep in touch via Twitter and your blog.

      take care,

      p.s. this is funny – I just realized a wonderful friend of mine who’s also named “Merry” commented just above yours. Is that a coincidence or what? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • That was so nice of you to post on FB & I loved the honey comb picture! And I love you too – it’s wonderful to connect there and here. Thank you so much for being in my corner, I mean honey comb of course. (((((hugs)))))) from Honey Pot

      • You’re welcome! Sorry I’m so late replying. Not sure if I’ll do much with my blog…all about those compulsions quieting down, you know! ๐Ÿ™‚ xxoo

  4. Lady, I promised myself not to count the numbers anymore. My smart phone crashed in December and the one I use can only get me notifications and whassap period. When I got notified of your post on Friday, I was just getting to Kribi a seaside resort. I decided to cut my stay short for several reasons including wanting to be connected to my PC or find a cybershop (there I was with pygmies, and watterfalls). I returned home late last night, did whatever I had to this morning and now am at a cyber shop to read and savour/comment on my “e-family’s” posts. Yours makes me so happy to be in this network, and sure am so so proud of and for you. Gosh I have spoken to you over phone and can attest to the sweetness of your voice ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep it up Lady, whoop whoop whoop, let me go do all I can on that huff post now ๐Ÿ™‚
