So trying here really hard but maybe some ideas and help is needed...
My question is for all you mama's who suffered PPD and PPD with Anxiety; How did you get over the guilt you had towards your self for not "loving" or not being 100% "attatched" to your child? My son is almost 3.5 years old and i always did love him but I wasn't fully attatched for quite some time. And I still carry this guilt and feel like he missed out on so much of me (the real me). I just don't know how to get past that guilt and move on. I was told by my counselor that; "I was probably the type of person that would never let go of that guilt and I should just stuff it down deep inside of my self" Well needless to say I didn't return after being told that, and I don't to this day believe that is what anyone should do. So any suggestions or just ideas on what you did to help you, I would greatly appreciate!!!
