My name is MammyWoo.
I am mammy to 5 year old champion whinger and manipulator extraordinaire, Addison Jake Woo.
We chose Jake after my brother, who left this world too soon, but lives on in my heart and in my memories. I miss him everyday, and when I see him again I’m going to kill him.
I was on maternity leave, then Post Natal depression, Psychosis, and DETD (doing embarrassing things disease) got the better of me and I ended up being sectioned in to a hospital for the mentally ill.
It was a dark time for me, mostly because I couldn’t reach the light switch from my bed.
I am now crawling out from the other side of that god awful metaphorical tunnel and am back at work, mostly pretending, to be a healthy fully rounded individual, with the light shining brightly.
It’s not easy, and I don’t pretend it is.
I find gin helps though. And Friendship. And Square crisps.
I used to be cool. Then I had a baby.
Now I wee when I sneeze.
I hope you enjoy my blog.
It’s like my therapy, so try not to laugh too much.
My rules for living?
No one can make you feel inadequate unless you let them.
A day without laughter is a day wasted.
You do not have to be blood related to be family.
If you have nothing nice to say, see a therapist.
How people treat you is their Karma, how you react is yours.
Search for the serenity to accept the things you cannot change, the courage to fight for the things you can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Call if you need me.
Or email me on Mammywoo@me.com.
You can now also read my novel – but if you do – let me know – so I can hide under the bed…
It is available across all platforms – The kindle link is below. *runs and hides*
