PPD takes different forms. If you’re concerned about your emotions that’s an indication to talk to someone. Don’t wait until you have to. I’ve been concerned myself and have talked to my OB and therapist to come up with a plan. Just that action alone brought me relief. Sleep deprivation, hormones, life changes all hit and whether it’s PPD or simply adjusting doesn’t matter. Don’t get hooked to the term or diagnosis. We all need support and a plan to manage this crazy time!
I also allow myself guilt free me time and started therapy 😌
I've dealt with ppd, ppa and pp anger. I'm back on medication to help but before that I learned to remove myself from a situation or walk away when halving these feelings, if you're not able to do that breathing exercises are a great way to ground yourself and communicating the way you feel with those around you is huge. I used to snap at my s.o and get so mad and explode but I started to talk through it with people around me and take the steps needed to ground myself. I hope this helps a bit and you find a way to cope
Yes I’ve felt this way.. lack of sleep can do a number of things on us .. and hormones Your aren’t alone .. my first is 8 years old I now have a baby same age.. and I promise it does get better.. in time
@Allie I couldn’t agree more with this! It really is just a lot for anyone to feel like they are spiraling out.
