Subscribe to Break Stuff To Live

Welcome to my midlife metamorphosis. I share personal narratives about my mental health journey, trauma work, and life as a 40-something mom-of-4 going through a divorce (and dating adventures!).


I used to write a mom blog called Baby Rabies, but I no longer share stories about giving birth to and raising babies. These days, I'm giving birth to and re-raising myself. And Wordpress gives me PTSD.
