I am a lot happier than in the beginning, and things are getting easier, but I still have days where I get upset for no reason & anger that comes from no where. I get overwhelmed by the simplest things. I cry over the stupidest things. Sometimes I feel like I’m not a good enough mom, that I should be doing more, criticizing myself constantly.
But, having PPD & anxiety has given me the opportunity to learn how to manage how I feel, to really focus on what is most important in putting my energy into, to surround myself with only positive people, and to give myself a break. .
