After Clyde was born my husband disappeared for about 20-30 mins to cry. He didn't want me to see him like that, at his lowest. He said he screamed, cursed, punched the steering wheel of the car and cried. He maybe cried with me 2-3 times after that on separate occasions, but for the most part he held it together, way better than I was able to. I'm telling you this because I think it's in man's nature to be the "strong one". To keep composure even if they are crying out inside. I think they try to be strong for us, but little do they know us women want to see their vulnerable side. We want to see their emotions and that they are human too. It makes us feel like we aren't so crazy for being emotional roller coasters.
Your story really affected me Lori. I've had dreams about it and replay it in my head as well. It is a nightmare but could have ended so much worse. You and your baby boy really are so very lucky to be alive. I know how hormones go completely crazy after birth (that's totally normal by the way) so right now your not looking at the glass half full, but in a few months I know it will hit you and you will be so happy and all this PPD and distress with be a thing of the past. All of our hearts go out to you! You have already been through wayyyy more than could ever be considered fair! Take is easy, get help from family, cry if you need to, cuddle that sweet baby boy tight and don't be ashamed to get medicine from your doctor to stabilize your hormones. Many women need it, your not alone and we are always here for you if you need to scream and cry.
Your body will slim down and your scars will fade. You are stunningly gorgeous and so **** strong!! Hang in there mama!!
