Quoting Chick+6!:" Who did you talk to? Were you afraid to be honest? I know I NEED to talk to someone, but I'm afraid they ... [snip!] ... away. It scares me so much that I have tried to hide it for several months. I'm just afraid I can't do this alone anymore..."I'm here to try and help. I was afraid to say something because I didn't want people looking at me different or weird ya know? I had a small bit and think I still suffer a little bit and my son is 1 now (I also have an 8 year old daughter). I never had this with her and my body was all weird and crazy after my son. I would cry and cry and shake and just hated life.
Quoting Chick+6!:" <blockquote><b>Quoting AvaMonster's Mommy:</b>" I was HORRIFIED! I knew little about ... [snip!] ... dont be ashamed! Its NOT your fault. <3"</blockquote> I just feel like a horrible mother, like a failure. "You aren't. Its not something you can control but you can do something now that know whats going on. Call your doctor and let them you know you are having some serious ppd issues and you would like to talk to somebody. Saying it outloud and actually admitting it was the hardest part for me. Just remember they see tons of women and PPD is very common. Nothing to be ashamed of even though it feels that way.
