Hello there, I’m back with my traditional hump day post! I’m sorry if I can’t post at least two times a week cause we’re too busy preparing for our Trip this weekend, I also run some errands and I think I’m having a what they call “writers block” kinda hard to think of what content to create but now I did it! Thank you to all the people who supports me all tge way. I can’t believe I’ve had a thousand views this month! whew! 🎉
Y’all the best!!! 💖
My post today is something serious. It’s about PPD (post partum depression) I already told you guys that I’ve experience it before if you read my post about motherhood. If not, you can click it here.
Let us first describe the PPD in scientific way,
(PPD) is a complex mix of physical, emotional, and behavioral changes that happen in a woman after giving birth. According to the DSM-5, a manual used to diagnose mental disorders, PPD is a form of major depression that has its onset within four weeks after delivery. The diagnosis of postpartum depressions is based not only on the length of time between delivery and onset, but also on the severity of the depression. For more scientific information, click here.
PPD is one of the hardest thing that I’ve experience as a mother. It really test my patience. I change moods easily, I get iritated most of the time. I’m always mad. I can’t sleep properly. My husband and I always argue about small things that come to the point that we had to get separated because he can’t handle me. I’m at the worse part of my Life. I can’t figure everything that’s happening to me and I don’t want my daughter to see it.
That’s the time that I seek for a professional help. I called a friend of mine and she’d refer me to a psychiatrist. I told her everything, What I did and I’ve experienced. She told me that I have a postpartum blues. that’s the mild version or the First level on before the depression. And I’m like what?! That’s not the worst, yet? Well I’m still thankful because it’s not the worst.
I always go out with my friends when they know that I’m sick. They’re always ask if I’m okay they’re very supportive. I didn’t know that friends are telling my husband how am I doing. My husband searched for that depression and how to cure it. He come back to me and told me that he shouldn’t had leave me. I understand my husband. I’m really at my worst that time. I don’t want any people around me, even my daughter. But I realized that if there’s one person that will help me. Well that’s ME! Family is just a support system. I’m the one who’s responsible for myself. After that conversation, my husband never leave me again. He always check if I’m okay. We always go out with our daughter. That’s the time I realized how bless I am. I’ve got the best support system in the world!
My daughter is best thing I’ve ever had. I don’t know what will I do without her. I always cried before because of small things but when I look at her. She removes my sorrow and pain. That depression brings out the worse in me, but my family and friends cure it. They’re the best remedy I’ve had. Until now my husband is there for me. He never leave as he promised. He supports me in my decisions and I’m grateful that I have him in my life
We still go out on a date. He spoils me a lot. He told me that that’s the reward of being a brave mama to kreona.He never fails to make me feel special. I don’t know what to do without him. He’s a blessing!
Now that I’ve had conquer that sickness. I pray for all the mama who are now experiencing it, I know you can fight it! We are all strong mamas and nothing can break us. Prayer is one of the best weapon too. God will guide us.
Hope you learn something today, Folks. Enjoy the rest of the day.
