Soon after I had my children, there was a feeling of Happiness within me...
1)Being able to see their faces...to see what/who they look like 2) Finally getting a chance enjoy those foods I love that they disagreed with (PANCAKES & EGGS!:) 3) And Yes!!! I GET MY BODY BACK!!! -Just to name a few!
But as the first weeks passed by, a sadness came over me...I had heard of postpartum depression ...one day while on the sofa I watch a talk show that talked about it but still I didn't think that I was experiencing that. I thought my tears were from not having my freedom...you know, getting up and going when I want, and the fact that my body had changed...I thought this is just a natural reaction...Hurting my babies in any way was far from my mind...so I cancelled the idea that I may have postpartum depression...
But now that my children are older, I often wonder....Did I...Do I have it?
Are there any fb moms who can relate or anyone who can share their experience and tell what helped/helps them overcome this battle?
