Hanging in there

Sorry - not much in a mood or have energy to blog much. I'm definitely suffering from post-par tum depression. This is rough. I want to take care of my baby but I have so little energy and than my emotions are so sad. Please tell me this will get better! I want the depression to go away, I want my energy back.

It stinks to feel miserable. Sending tons of good thoughts your way.

It should, but please see someone if it worsens or doesn't start lightening up soon.

You really should tell your doctor about how you're feeling. I hope you feel better soon!

Hang in there.

I was lucky and escaped post-partum depression (probably because I was already on antidepressants), but I have the ordinary kind and I've been on medication for it for nearly 20 years.

The most important thing I learned from it all is that time keeps on ticking. Every second is a second closer to it getting better. Sure, maybe you can only hang in on a second by second or minute by minute basis, but time keeps going. Those seconds turn into minutes and then into days and weeks, and you look back, surprised, to see that you did hang in there and it is so much better than it was.

Hang in there.

But like the others said, if it doesn't get better, do go and see the doctor, both for you and for your baby.

Wishing you all the best.

Ugh. Sorry I've been such a bad friend and haven't called or checked in on your blog in so long. Please hang in there and yes, go get some help if it doesn't pass soon. Hubby can watch the baby an afternoon while you see someone.
