Pregnancy is hard. Deployed spouses is hard. Being a mommy is super hard. It is why so many DDC stay so close, even with drama. We are all dealing with a lot of the same emotions, fears, and feelings. Nobody understands like another mommy. The first 6-12 weeks after baby comes feel nearly impossible. On one hand, you have the most amazing creature that you haved loved and looked forward to meeting for 9months and on the othe, you really just want to take a shower and sleep. It makes you super conflicted, which is only going to magnify your depression. You might consider a low dose med, just to get you through the worst of it. There is no shame in asking a medication. It is not like you chose depression. It is a chemical reaction.
