Hi... I'm late to the party as I have been trying to justify/ignore my PPD for the last 7 months. I was just diagnosed this week, conveniently before the holidays when all the support available in my town takes a 2 week vacation.
I love my son- but he doesn't sleep at night which makes me crazy. I have two dogs that seem to annoy me to no end lately and get yelled at a lot- I feel bad and am trying to make an effort to spend some 'nice' time with them
DH works a lot and feels everything related to our son is my responsibility and if I need him to help I need to ask and then he complains and does stuff like go to bed at 8:30 because he is tired (meanwhile he slept all last night and I woke up with LO at 3, 5, and 7). I also am stupid and feel guilty when LO gets formula (I get nothing when I pump because I have supply issues) so I rarely leave him with anyone to give myself a break.
I was keeping busy and involved with another group of moms but tonight I decided to leave because I was feeling very judged as a bad mom, a feeling I am very good at putting on myself without the help of others. It was upsetting me far more than it was worth, I realized.
So hi everyone! Anyone care to share anything that has/is working for them?
