Mamas, Today is his birthday and I feel terrible. I want to share something with you that I've never told anyone else - I'm just too ashamed. When my DS was born I let the nurses take him during the first night. They took him to my room when he needed to BF but I let him sleep alone. And that is not normal practice in Denmark - the nurses recommend co-sleeping from the first nigth. I just couldn't be with him at that point. The second night my husbond took him (he was...
PM me. I'm a psychologist who specializes in PTSD treatment. I'm sending you lots of hugs mama!
Ok, ladies. I've met someone and it's very serious! We met this weekend and spent all the time together on saturday and sunday talking and talking and a bit of kissing. I'm really blown away by this guy and he feels the same. He is a great person and I don't think I've ever met a man that I felt was a great person. There are no red flags, no doubts, no flaws. He is the guy with the icescraper and has proved to be already. I'm happy He is completly in love with me...

Yes, it did bring me peace. Thank you for your support. I write here every year - I don't really think about it anymore the rest of the year. Do you want more kids and if so have you thought about what kind of...
...since my DS was born. It was a terrible experience of highly induced labor that lasted 72 hours and ended with a instrumental delivery - without the any pain meds. I still cannot remember the pain - only the screaming and the intense fear. I was so scared he would die that I was afraid to love him for the first five days of his life. I suffered from PTSD because of it. I just need a bit of support and a hug tonight. TIA mamas.

He is a great guy. I had a nice time. Nice dinner at a nice restaurant, everything went fine. Do you guys sense the enthusiasm here? He even walked me to my door (not...
Quote: Originally Posted by LoveOhm While I realize people have flaws, and if I want them to accept my flaws (and I have many) then I need to accept theirs but I also wonder is this too big a flaw to accept from someone I was/am considering opening my heart and at some point down the line exposing my dd to? Him being in rehab and addressing the problem is better than living with this problem everyday on his own right? But for me it means moving even...
