After the birth – The post publication blues

I was given so much advice about childbirth. I spent hours reading books and going to classes that taught me how to breathe and relax and position myself and bear down.

What a waste of time.

It was only a day. And no matter what the books and classes said, it was always going to be a shite one.

Instead, I wish someone had taught me how to cope with life after the birth.

It’s the same with publication day. Everything is geared towards it.

Your book is going to be released on July 21.

For more than nine months, it’s in the diary, on the calendar, in your head.

Then it comes.

And it goes.

And you’re left wondering what the hell all the fuss was about.

What are you supposed to do now?

The worst thing is, you haven’t even got a baby. At least a baby might grow up to be an accountant and put you in a nice home.
