Dumpdom

1 Feb

Took a dip the past two days. And I don’t mean skinny. I started out feeling ok and even got excited about the prospect of getting the house sold, which energized me to put away at least two weeks worth of laundry. But then, for some reason, I just dipped into the nether-regions of dumpdom. I’m cranky and weepy and it’s not PMS. My anxiety is through the roof because I’m giving notice tomorrow at work. We can’t handle it financially but we’ve decided my health is more important than our finances and material things. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that the house will sell and sig-o will get another job that will allow us to relocate. Wish me luck…

Vent of the day — Today my sister-in-law and mother-in-law told me that they think all my problems right now are because the doc messed up my epidural during delivery. This is just another of their attempts to tell me I’m not really depressed and that I don’t really need medication. Gee, thanks…

    I know it’s really hard when other people…especially family members…have a difficult time accepting that PPD is a real illness. Please don’t let their opinions and lack of knowledge of your illness deter you from seeking the help that you deserve. Maybe you could give them some information on PPD to help them understand what you are going through?
    I wish you all the best and sending luck your way.

      Thanks, Kimberly. I try not to let it bother me, but who am I kidding — it does! Thanks for your support — it means a lot to just hear it from someone else who has been there.
