This post isn't an easy one to write. I've always thought that I would never become one of "those" people. In the last few weeks I have realized that I need some help. I am going to call my doctor on Monday because I think that I have postpartum depression and anxiety. I looked online at the lists for each and I have over half of the symptoms that are on there. Yesterday was a pretty hard day for me. I never take any anger out on the baby, he is the only thing that makes me happy. I just know this is not how I normally act- and it has been putting a strain on me and DH. My anxiety has been out of control lately. I live in NY where we hardly ever get tornadoes, maybe once every few years there is one, but it is never bad. Well I have this anxiety that we are going to get a tornado here and we are going to die. It was so bad that the other night we went to my Mom's house to sleep because she has a basement and we don't. I get these feelings every time they say a thunderstorm is coming through. I hate feeling like this. Hopefully the doctor can give me some suggestions or something that will be able to help me, because right now I am up for anything.
