Love and hope. These two words have been my motto in life lately. I’ve been struggling to write this post and wasn’t so sure I wanted to, but I know it’s only right to share with my readers a little bit of what I’ve been going through. I thought that being a new mom was supposed to be the happiest time in my life (and don’t get me wrong – it still is) but I had NO idea how hard postpartum would hit me. I actually had no prior knowledge of postpartum and went into my pregnancy completely unaware of the concept of postpartum anxiety/depression. As I’m not quite ready to express all my feelings yet to the world – I do want my readers to know that I’m working on getting better. Please be patient with me while I try to get out of this funk – I definitely haven’t been feeling myself lately and I just know that if I want to get better – I need to work on myself first above all else. I’m so blessed to have an amazingly supportive hubby and sweet baby girl who is happy and healthy and it’s been extremely emotional for me to go through PPD because simply put- I just never thought it would happen to me.
Thanks so much for listening and if any of you have any advice for me, I’d love to hear it.
