Random post. Need to say something to help me feel better.
Baby blues are killer. Maybe it's bc I had postpartum depression last time & I'm not sleeping enough, but seriously, it's just hard to stay positive sometimes...
It's hard describe how it feels to people who haven't felt this way, but it's like all your regular faults, failings, insecurities,etc, are magnified by about 1000x. If you feel like being lazy about dinner on a regular day, with baby blues or postpartum it's like a horrible, terrible chore you can't even find the energy to do. If you have trouble with friends, money, it just feels like those insecurities are insurmountable, you will never get ahead.
So if you have ever felt this way, you are not alone. I'm trying to be really proactive this time to fend off the blues; exercising, eating better, staying busy, getting out of the house, but it's still a huge struggle. At least today.
Maybe there are other moms who feel this way & need to feel consolation, and if you haven't, send some good vibes my way :-)
