I'm taking part in the "Back to Blogging" events hosted by the SITS girls in an effort to get back into the swing of things all the craziness of summer.
It's day TWO, but if you're interest in participating, there's plenty of time to get involved. Learn how by clicking here. The event is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances!
Out assignment today was to repost a blog post I wish more people read & why.
I choose "Hard Times of Post Partum"
Post Partum is a very sensitive subject and for some reason not a lot of women want to admit they have it. With my first daughter, Makenna, I didn't do anything about it. I never talked to anyone about it... I just dealt with it.
When Kendall was about 2 weeks old I knew PPD set in once again. This time around I was not going to deal with it on my own. I was taking it out on Makenna and eventually I was taking it out on the hubby and sometimes Kendall.
I spoke to my doctor about it and she put me on Zoloft. I thank God every day that she put me on it. I knew I couldn't do it on my own and it's helped 100%. I'm a completely different person now. Not a "different" person... just ME again. I was not me once Kendall was born and the on set of taking care of two kids, a house and being a wife finally set it.
I think more people should have read my post because maybe they could relate and not be so afraid of PPD themselves. Maybe then they will have the courage to talk to someone. Maybe she will see that someone else out there felt the same way as she does.
