i am 20. i am a stay at home mom of a 10 month old boy. i am a wife for over a year now. i am looking for mom that are going through the same things as me. I am having a hard time and am depressed alot
Hi there and welcome to JM!!! I am so sorry that you are going through this right now - I have not had any children yet but one of my very good friends was in a similar situation and I know it helped her a lot to just talk to other people about it.
Depression is one thing that many Mom's suffer from post baby that is. It is our time for our bodies to go back to normal and it takes a while for everything to regulate... The best advice I have for you is to take time time for just u everyday. For me it was after my son went to bed at night... I would write, do homework (I was going back to college), journal, paint, ect. The next thing I did was to tAlk with my ob and my primarily healthcare provider and determine the need for medication. I was put on meds that same day, which allowed me to function... Additionally I was given a referral to psychologists that would help to fine tune my meds. All in all I was on them for three months and then able to stop them. Since then I have been on and off meds for anxiety, but that's always been my problem, possibly more so then the depression. Any who I hope this helps.
