Ali on the Run Show Episode 118: A Message From Ali

“Motherhood, for me, over the past three and a half months, has involved a lot of waves. I’ve ridden them and at times I’ve been drowning. Other times I’m treading water and managing to stay afloat, no matter how exhausted I’ve been. And other times, I’ve been getting along like I actually know how to swim! Right now, though, in this very moment, I’m on the drowning side of things.”

It’s been a tricky week. So this is a quick check-in to say hi, and to [kind of] explain why I just didn’t get it together to get a “real” episode out this week. Forgive me? Thanks! There’s a lot of good stuff to come on the Ali on the Run Show — I just need to take a few deep breaths first!

  1. I remember you mentioned seeking help from a mental health professional in your last solo episode (in addition to the wonderful baby-related help you’ve very wisely sought). I really hope that you are still planning to pursue as it sounds like it could make much of this (at least feel) so much easier. I know this is not my business, but I promise it is coming from a place of kindness.

      1. I’m a longtime fan of your blog and podcast and am truly sorry to hear that things are so hard right now. I relate a lot to the feelings you express, as the mom of a 10-week-old baby girl and someone who has struggled with anxiety and depression. I was going to ask the same question as Reagan and am glad to see that you are getting some help in this area, because you’re doing a great job and deserve to feel great. Therapy and/or medication aren’t a quick fix, but your mental health is worth it- and this is coming from someone who fought the idea of meds like *crazy* for a long time. Please know that things won’t always feel this way, there are better days ahead, and you are not alone. Sending so much love. <3
