I wish I could say I've been enjoy the newborn stage, but I'm really not. The colic has been so brutal. It's mentally draining, it brings back my depression, anxiety and bad intrusive thoughts dealing with the high pitched inconsolable crying. Having to go through this a second time has been so defeating and heart breaking.
From trying all natural remedies, formulas, bouncing, swings, massaging, and white noise nothing truly works but time.
Once again I've been prescribed anti depressants. They sit there untouched as it's so hard to accept the fact that things have gotten so hard again when we were in the clear with Riley. I constantly tell myself that it's just a phase and it will get better with time.
I share this part of our life, to let others know what colic is and that if you're dealing with colic also that you're not alone.
