Morgan Shanahan, a founding editor of BuzzFeed Parents, makes visitors laugh daily about parenting challenges, yet she has suffered from maternal mental illness for most of her child's life. She shares her story to help others who may be experiencing the same--as well as explains how it's helped her create some of the funniest content on the parenting internet.
