    So sorry you are struggling with this again, Taryl. But very glad you are strong and wise enough to recognize the signs and get help so quickly. Hope this passes quickly and you continue to have amazing support from Peter. Thinking of you.

    I've been wondering where you were, Mama. Good for you for being proactive and recognizing what you need ~ I had a hard time the week or so after Jake's birth ~ If you want to talk you know how to reach me. Please know that I am thinking of you ~ take advantage of your wonderful husband and get the rest that you need. Big hugs.

    Taryl, you are so amazing for being on top of your mental health!

    I had a talk with my mw's last night and they reminded me that it is still sooo early and that this is the time that we need to just nurse and heal. I know for me it is so easy to get sucked into what needs to be done cleaning, cooking and still trying to mother my other kids. You are not even a week postpartum - Do NOT DO TOO MUCH! Take this time to nurse and heal. Let your husband be the awesome guy he is and give thanks that he is so wonderful so that you can just sit and nurse and squeeze in some cuddles with your girls.

    In some cultures mothers don't get out of bed for 41 days. I think that is the ideal and if you can get a week or two of time to recuperate, take it and don't feel like you need to be doing to much.

    I think if you just lower expectations for the next little bit and be kind to yourself, that things will become easier each day. You will be back to your schedule and routine in no time.

    Awww hugs to you Taryl! I am glad that you are seeking help. That is the first step. Try and rest and take care of yourself. I will say a little prayer for you. Just remember you can vent her anytime.

    I'm glad you are getting help too and recognize what is going on at such an early stage. Bug hugs to you. I agree if anyone needs an easy time it is for sure you after so many weeks dealing with labor. Get lots of extra rest and don't worry about anything else but you and cuddling/feeding Seth. Sounds like you have an awesome DH that is helping out a ton. Vent when ever you need. Hugs to you.

    Good for you for being in tune with what your needs are right now!

    I firmly believe that a huge factor in PPD is the sheer fatigue, both physically and emotionally, that many woman experience after birth. You went through a lot... Physically your body must just be worn out from the endless contractions and emotionally exhausted too - the anticipation, the weeks of being on "guard" take their toll.

    Sounds like you've got an awesome, supportive husband who is more than willing to step in for you. Take all the time you need to rest, but be sure to do the things you love. You'll make it though. And there are plenty of us who can relate if you need an anonymous place to express how you are feeling.

    I hope you're feeling a bit better now, it's been a few days for the meds to kick in and the hormones to release and things to settle a bit. Good for you for recognizing the signs and getting the help you need. And ITA with the pp who said, take the time, I didn't do anything for two weeks, just nursed & slept, unless I *wanted* to. Your only job right now is to nurse that baby, and take care of yourself. It's Peter's job to do everything else. Let him. When you can get some good rest & start feeling better physically, you'll probably start feeling better mentally, too; if not talk to your doctor. It wasn't until the cloud of depression lifted after Tiven's birth that I realized I was dealing with PTSD and I needed different meds (and therapy) to get back to normal. And of course, feel free to vent here whenever you need it, we totally understand!
