Postpartum Support Circle - Page 8

post #141 of 142
I could have just about written your post. I am so sorry you are going thru this. I too have been avoiding an Rx (I actually tried them a couple months ago, but the guilt of passing it on thru my breastmilk made me stop after about 2 days), but now I am to a point where the benefits outweigh the risks. I have been trying a homeopathic remedy but I am not seeing any signs of improvement so at the moment I am not a big fan of alternatives. Just my opinion.

The support of others is probably the biggest thing that can help. It was the support of a great friend who helped me quit smoking several years ago and so I truely believe in a support system. I met my quit buddy online, since I had no one else IRL. And I currently don't have anyone for this situation either so I have been relying on these boards to hear others stories so I don't feel so alone.

Try not to worry about the housework getting away from you or too much TV. I know that is easier said than done. Your health and your kids health is much more important than any of the other stuff. I decided I really needed help when I was putting the housework ahead of my kids and still not managing to anything done. Then getting mad at my 2 year old like it is her fault. What a mess!

Don't be afraid to ask for help. Talk to your dr., a neighbor, family, friends, strangers on this board. I hope things get better for you soon!!!

Thanks for the support! I am trying a few things to help. And have already seen a major difference. I am so glad I did not turn to meds.
