April 2007 Mamas - It's October! - Page 6

post #101 of 810
just posting a quick update...(and i just copy and pasted from the ppd forum, so i don't have to type it all out again )

So Sat i called a crisis line hoping to connect with some resources and got the # for public health and that they did ppd screening. i called the next day and spilled my guts to, including that i had thoughts of harming my toddler. They put me in contact with mental health who proceeded to give me more phone #'s (all i really wanted was the name of a doc with some experience with ppd) and i kinda broke down crying. anyway next thing you know cps is at the door.
Now apparently they were only there to assess the safety of the kids and to offer resources, but I was freaked! We co-sleep, non vax, no wbv etc and we just moved across the country, I've been depressed so you can only imagine what the house looked like.
I did find a doctor who finally got it and prescribed medication. I am hoping to feel better in a couple of weeks.
So everything is fine, except i had a bit of a reaction to the meds she gave me, so just working out the kinks now.
We are moving back east permanently, and that has already made me feel better.
So, onward and upward.
Thanks for all the kind words and support girls!
Now off to check out our new forum!

My thoughts exactly. I mean, we can't let the may board win... I wouldn't feel right about that. Mclisa and I are invested in winning now.

I think we'd be awkward at first, but Romi & Eva would soon share styling tips thus breaking the ice. I mean come on, how could they not? They have so much to learn from one another... So join me in Amélie-land where gnomes and music are everywhere, lalala!

Oh hon
I hope the meds work quickly (they did for me, although I felt weird and jittery the first couple of days which made my anxiety spike). I hope you'll feel closer to being yourself soon. I'm just happy you found a dr that "got it", you know? It's so hard to actually take the step and spill your guts, and you had to do it a few times. I feel horrible for you.

Oh. mama, oh dear. This must be just feel like a nightmare for you. I was trying to imagine myself in your position, and I think I would feel like my world has totally fallen apart. You must be wondering how you got here. Oh, I wish I could just bring you over some hot tea and dark chocolate and some good homemade soup, and I would do your dishes and sweep the floor and let you rest awhile. I'm sorry, but you need some love! And not that I just have sympathy for your ppd, but just that everything's a bit of a mess for you right now, I'm so sorry.
I hope your move goes really smoothly. I hope when you get home you'll just be able to pick up the pieces and put yourself back together. Will you have to find a new place to live? How's your hubby dealing with this?
I'm so sorry you had to deal with CPS. That must have been surreal. But I'm so glad you finally found someone who listened, and got what you needed. I hope this is the road to health and joy. Please keep us updated. Lately I've been thinking I wish I knew your address so I could send you a card. I hope that's not weird. Sometimes I wonder where the appropriate lines are in virtual communities!
hugs to you mama, and your sweet boys too. They won't even remember any of this.

...and then Axel and Liam would smash and break things together...hopefully not bones... and we could have a fat contest, which we would win, and a french contest, which you would win...oh, and about the 'no english thing' with Romi, doesn't count because quite obviously she WILL know english with eloquence and my poor kids don't have a stinking chance, even though I am actually french as well but don't know anything more than 'le motoneige' because my parents moved to Alberta before I was born...

omg, tea, chocolate and soup are just what I need right now!
My parents are very supportive, so they will help us get back on our feet. And they are being really understanding, since as you can well imagine, I am feeling a little dumb! One should not move across the country 5 months pp, especially if they suspect they have ppd! I think I may have even mentioned it in the Aug thread. But anyway, everyone makes mistakes. Dp is disappointed, but just wants me to feel better and will do whatever that takes. I feel bad for him.
I would love a card! But I'm only at this addy for a few more days, so I'll have to let you know when we're settled . Maybe we can meet at hillside next year, who cares if it's weird, ..

Savannah is being sooo weird today... Happy as a clam, then collapsing into tears (big crocodile kind) in a 2.3 seconds. Hm. Frustrating.
Montreal! That'd be SO cool! (If I can afford it, of course)
I think we'd all get along pretty well... after all, this is a pretty focused website to begin with, plus we have cute babies that are the same age!

And on another note, I sucked up more than 50 boxelder bugs today with the vacuum. Man, that feels good. But there's already more to replace them.
