I think I've hit a breakthrough with my postpartum depression and anxiety.
Cub Scout Day Camp was last week. Last year, I couldn't sleep for weeks before. This year, I decided to not stress and I didn't. If you've ever known anyone with depression or anxiety then you'll know that saying "Don't stress about it" is futile. I promise, I wanted to be able to control my emotions. I just couldn't. But this year, I could. And it felt good.
PPD is something I've been wanting to write about for a while. I just don't know where to begin. I will take this issue up soon. Hopefully my experience will help someone. Just know, that you if recently had a baby or are pregnant, and you don't feel right. If you feel sad or helpless or even feel like you don't love your baby--YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Yes, I did just yell. You are not. Get help. Don't be embarrassed. PPD is treatable. Don't let it take over your life. You will get better.
