I appreciate your commitment to trolling and tomatoes. The world has been through a lot of changes recently and it’s nice to have some consistency somewhere in my life.
Yeah but I don’t think Kanye will be the one to make it worse.
I hope he gives Kanye a job. At this point why not? His presidency is going to be insane as it is already, I don’t see how Kanye could make it any worse.
Thank you for this! I really wish I could stay at home or at least extend my maternity leave. Unfortunately we just bought a new house so we need my income, and I had pregnancy complications that made me have to go out of work half way through my pregnancy so I’m out of time.
Word. I can understand being stressed about money, it’s a thing that at least makes sense. I saw an episode of Fixer Upper the other day where Chip are a cockroach he found in a house. I can’t comprehend that.
I just embrace it. They’re my favorite because I’m from SoCal so I like seeing renovations of homes that are “normal” sizes and prices (to me obviously). Plus I like that Tarek doesn’t play the “goofy husband” role. I watch the other shows but I can’t STAND how the husbands are always “another child!” Ugh. Oh and… Read more
I needed that reminder, that I’m not signing up for a lifetime of anything, thank you.
I actually agree that how I’m feeling is probably with the range of normal-ish for new moms, so I wouldn’t be opposed to trying group therapy as an alternative to medicines, at least to begin with, but unfortunately I just don’t have the time! I have to get it together pretty quickly before I return to work in a few… Read more
Thank you for sharing this! I love that it works so well for you, I hope that I have a similar experience with whichever medicine I end up using.
Thank you for saying this. I really was trying to cope on my own because I was convinced that it would just work itself out and I didn’t want to take “unnecessary” meds because of the side effects. This weekend, and everyone that’s been willing to share their stories with me, has really convinced me how silly that is.… Read more
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! My mom and my sister are caring for my baby when I return to work and I know they will have no problem sending me pictures so thank you for that suggestion. Read more
Good luck with trying to conceive! Despite this anxiety and panic attacks my son is the best thing to ever happen to me. Thank you so much for sharing, I definitely want to look into CBT it seems like it’s very effective for panic disorder.
Thank you so much. Hearing this makes me feel so much better about myself. Even though I know better, it’s hard not to feel like I’ve failed in some way by not being “normal” and ready to go back to work.
Thank you for this. I will remember your advice when I feel the next panic attack coming on. You aren’t the first person to mention having a medication to take when you feel a panic attack starting. I am going to bring this up to my psychiatrist for sure, I think having something that I know works in the moment could… Read more
Oh these grounding techniques are such good practical advice! Thank you! I have some errands to run this morning and I’m sure I’ll get the chance to practice them. Thank you so much for sharing, I’m so glad you’ve found some relief for your PTSD.
Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of that! And a Merry Christmas to you too! :)
Thank you so much. You’re absolutely right, I would never want to set an example for my son that mental illness shouldn’t be taken care of. Your perspective on this has been invaluable to me.
I am a bit concerned about side effects, such as the sex stuff you mentioned, but it really helps me to hear that even when the first medication wasn’t quite right people did eventually find one that was good for them, so thank you!
Unfortunately that ship has sailed as I’m 9 weeks PP and never breast fed. I work too far from home and my commute is at least an hour each way by train so it wasn’t going to be possible to pump at work. Many of my friends had told me that they experienced some PPD when stopping breast feeding so I didn’t want that to… Read more
