Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:" I'm actually on that now. I just ran out of my prescription, but it's been helping me pretty well. ... [snip!] ... it with my antidepressants. It kinda evens it out so I don't deal with the negative side effects of those. What mg are you on?"I'm glad it's helping! I never got to take it because I was breastfeeding and they poo poo'd that idea but I was on 125 mg of zoloft and .5 mg of klonopin (anxiety was my BIG issue) and that brought me back to the old me within 3 weeks. I owe my life and my relationship to my son to that med combo. I know that once this one comes i'm gonna need it. Three of my PPD mom friends got to take wellbutrin bc they weren't BFing and they were doing SOOOOO well on it! They had so much energy and had nothing but good things to say. I wanna say my best friend was on 200 or 300 mg? I think that's lower for wellbutrin though.
Quoting Chroma Hex [+1]:" I think the main part of being a parent is breaking your comfort zones and doing things for your child ... [snip!] ... child, and that makes you stronger than someone with those natural instincts that, unfortunately, some of us just don't have."
Quoting Mandy loves Hailey+Boy:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:</b>" It's him It's like if someone ... [snip!] ... it. I feel bad that I can't give her the emotional support she needs sometimes. But I am working really hard to try to fix it."

Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:" You're very right. I adopted my son back in 2010. I'd been in his life since 2007. The bio mom was ... [snip!] ... felt like it. I didn't want that for him. So, there's just a lot of regret right now. Lots of questions. Lots of guilt. "
Quoting Mandy loves Hailey+Boy:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:</b>" Why is she living with you guys? I don't ... [snip!] ... until she's 18 anyway, that thought really scares me. That's another reason I need to get away. I need to get away from her."
Quoting Chroma Hex [+1]:" The act that led up to Addie's conception wasn't consensual. I couldn't afford an abortion and I knew ... [snip!] ... you went through and not have regrets and resentment. The important thing, like I said, is doing what you need to despite it. "
Quoting Cariad (SuperKink):" Totally understand how you feel mama! There are so many days where I just put dvds on and I'm like smurf ... [snip!] ... focus on the cute things your boy does. Every mum loves it when her kids are asleep. That's when I love my boys the most! "
Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:" Honestly, nothing my son does is cute. He's 6 and just... not cute. heh. I've never been a fan of school ... [snip!] ... Only 1 1/2 more hours for meeeeee. Then it's video game time. Except DD is still napping right now, so that's gonna suck."
Quoting T-Swizzle+2:" I was going through something very similar before I moved back close to my family. We made the decision ... [snip!] ... be difficult now that he's in school... but you have to do something to help yourself. You guys just can't live like this. "
