Should I seek help?
3 weeks PP. I don’t even know how to explain what I’m feeling. Most days I’m okay but then someone will say something and it knocks me into a world full of sadness, upset and I’m just a different person.
My mum made a comment after I told her I’ve changed to formula. She said- ‘you’re on maternity leave, you have the time to be breastfeeding’ that was my trigger.
Only I know how much I wanted to BF, I tried and I even pumped after my nipples blistered and became so so sore. My supply wasn’t great and at the same time I was/an recovering from a more complex c section.
I even said to my mum I was feeling tired to her responding with ‘I brought you up, don’t you think we got tired’ I’m not tired of my children. I’m just physically tired from not sleeping great at night and being in pain and just the early days of pp. I reacted and told her how I didn’t like it and she told me I’m miserable.
Am I just being sensitive but I can’t seem to get past the comments made and the way people are around me. Like I genuinely feel like I cba with anyone.
I had PPD 3 years ago and I don’t think I ever really got over it but I declined to take medication. Am I going through the same thing?
Any advise is appreciated.
