Please don't feel like a loser!! Im glad you got help
I did this w/ my 2nd and got on wellbutrin and am still on it. (I have had depression/anxiety before the kids too) I was actually diagnosed w/ ppd, so we knew to look for it this time around too. I started feeling it this week.
My mom was here w/ us helping out a few days and she tends to make me very nervous/stressed. She keeps wanting to rearrange my furniture, not listening to "I like it where it is, thats why we put it there" I keep repeating!!!!
: so needless to say the last day she was here I was a mess. I balled like a baby at the end of the day, telling dh I was sorry, I felt like I was ruining our babymoon by being blah.....it took me a few days to realize that its probably pp depression.
Im really trying to be aware of my feelings and didn't know about the mag/cal supplement. I've kinda slacked off taking them, so I'll get back on the ball. I know the irritation I feel at the girls is a combo of lack of sleep, stress, and real annoyance when I've got J.C to sleep or quieted down and they "love/squash" all over him and wake him up again
: but I feel so bad when I yell at them. I hate yelling, and I find myself doing it more often. Then of course I begin to cry and apologize for yelling and telling them "mommy's just really tired"
I know it'll get better and we just have to hang in there, but hormones are a BITCH!!
