I've been writing this post in my head for at least a month.
Thanks so much for all of that, Mari!
(((HUGS))) Suzie! Don't feel bad about MIA and you are certainly not some kind of a "failure" for having to deal with PPD. It is extremely common and you are NOT alone--but it is awesome that you were able to identify it quickly and be honest with your doctor to get the help you needed. That just shows how much of a "success" you are!
Greyson is adorable and you are doing a great job. I hope we see you around more often but your first priority is yourself and your family, so don't worry about "us"--just take care of YOU.
Suzie - I am so glad you are back!! Welcome back. and your little one is so cute! I can't believe that he is 4 months old already. Where does time go.
I am really glad that you reached out and got some help. And I am really glad that you are starting to feel better. Just remember to keep reaching out.
I had to do the same thing about 2 months ago - I didn't have the anxiety, but more overwhelming feelings and they put me on an anti-depressant. My best friend and Aunt are both on Zoloft and it's worked WONDERS for them!!
Glad to have you back!
Suzie! So great to hear from you! I think about you often and was wondering how you were doing. Grey is adorable, what a beautiful little guy.
As the others have said, PPD is nothing to be ashamed of and the most important thing is that you sought help. I too am battling anxiety about going back to work in just 3 short weeks but it's getting a little easier as Selin gets older.
Hope to hear from you more often - we miss you! :-D
