Let me say this first: Pax's CT scan came back normal- no craniosynostosis YAY! He is always doing amazing in physical therapy and probably wont need a hement because of his torticollis. Also i am struggling with PPD. I am on meds and seeing a therapist. I am really trying to keep a handle on it. My husband and I are both in ruts individually ( if any of you remember he is a chronic depressive trying to get his meds under control too...). However, we both agree our marriage is good- go figure. Hey i'll take anything at this point. The last 4 days have created the perfect storm of me about to loose it.
My sweet boy has always been a good sleeper, but the last 4 days he refuses to nap anywhere but on my chest. I haven't had to deal with anything like this and I am about to lose it. First: he is crying more than ever. He is normally such a happy, low maintenance baby so I have no idea why he is inconsolable half of the day. Second: My nerves are feeling like live wires right now. Not because of the crying, but because I don't know what is wrong. Third: I have a herniated disc in my neck and muscle damage in my shoulder from a bad car accident. I have been managing the pain for almost 4 years now without any prescription meds but after these last 4 days my body is KILLING me. Aleve is not cutting it. Forth: He is refusing to eat and I don't know why. Fifth: He has his 4 months shots today and I am terrified of how it is going to make the situation at home like...
I have tried Tylenol, gas drops, teething tablets, frozen wash clothes, and he is on reflux meds.
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!! I just want to hide under the covers and have someone else clean my house and cook dinner because neither of those things have been done for weeks now. That just makes it harder.... I am living in a pigsty, but I feel so overwhelmed I don't know where to start. Please tell me I am not alone and please give me some words of wisdom or advice. I could really use it.
Sorry if this was rambling. This is what the inside of my head feels like right now.
