Yes I deal with post partum really bad......I just try to breathe and take my days min by min sometimes sec by sec

My baby isn’t born yet, I’m 20 weeks, but I have always struggled with depression and last summer it escalated a lot. Getting pregnant has really helped my mental health, I feel like I have so much to be grateful for, but last night and today were really awful for me. I had horrible thoughts. Reminding myself of my baby was what kept me going. I’m considering going back on my meds even though it is not great to take them during pregnancy. Anyway, I apologize for venting on your post. I would appreciate advice as well. I’m sorry you are struggling with this. I hope you can find the help you need. 💕

@Mila please don't apologize. (((Hugs)))
