Hi all. If you follow my blog, you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been around as much as usual. And I’m sorry about that! Really, I am. I love producing honest, relatable content that helps other mamas with PTSD feel human, and which keeps me connected to the world at large. But with everything going on in my life, I’ve had to privilege paid work over blogging. I’ll link a few of my recent stories that I’m most proud of at the bottom of this post, so you can see that I haven’t been doing nothing. But as the year comes to a close, I want to offer you a way to keep Betty’s Battleground going. By asking you to support the blog through Patreon. Let’s keep ‘er alive…

I’m proud to say that Betty’s Battleground has reached it’s half-year mark. I started ‘er at the end of January. The first post was about overcoming my PTSD symptoms to take my older daughter to the Womxn’s March against Trump. (Sadly, this anniversary also means Trump’s been our president just as long…but let’s focus on the positive).
This blog and I have been through a lot these past several months. I survived an onslaught of abusive litigation from the man who caused my PTSD, threats and abuse from his current girlfriend, a disappointing betrayal by my father, bumps in my marriage, craziness from the kids, and my own tumultuous mood swings. This blog and I have fared through good days and bad; high volume days and 50 view dips. I’ve found the footing to launch my freelance pursuits, and am now moving on to fellowship applications.
Today, to celebrate and give thanks to my readers and donors, I’m publishing a page filled with paying markets for mental health articles. I have been compiling these resources for the past month, and I’ll be updating it as I find more, so bookmark (pin, stumble, etc) the page!
