TBH it's probably got more to do with my need to feel like I can do this, I can get stuff done on my own (like so many women do) and I did expect things to be a bit easier now at nearly 7 months (when it was probably easier at 3 months). I wish I never joined the gym as I am not getting value since I struggle to get there once a week and still don't have Physio clearance to do any high impact exercise or weights (I didn't realise this when I joined at 6 weeks PP). I still exercise daily, it's just the 'me' time I am lacking, I feel angry that I can't get it together and just make it happen. I just feel like everything is constantly working against me and everything feels like such a freaking mission. And as a 2nd time mum, I shouldn't be finding it so hard.
Just passed a woman (am out walking the pram) walking with a whinging crying toddler with snot ********* out his nose. We have each other the 'oh I know!' look and smile as we crossed paths. Some days we just need to accept this is as good as it's going to get. Here's hoping for better days just around the corner.
I totally sympathise with you @sunnygirl79. Whenever I read your posts... It's like we have the same child. Mine is 6 months old and a stage 5 clinger. Took him for a 30 minute walk in the pram today, cried all the way home. No reason.
I have to keep reminding myself today that my daughter is sick and this is why she's being the worlds biggest butt head. I don't often spend a whole day with her on my own and it does worry me for when I'm on parental leave next year but hopefully when she's not sick she'll be nicer to be with!
My DH is a douche sometimes. Because not listening to DS, putting the news on super loud so he does not hear DS is super helpful... at waking DD.
Anyone else having issues with the app? It says there are no new posts, then when I click 'see posts in last 24hrs here' I get told I need to wait 3 seconds...no matter how long I wait.
Devastated by the lack of "STORM" last night.
I am at a point in life where regular psychologist appointments are a necessity (I still see psychiatrists/case manager who is a psychologist/OT/social workers etc through the mental health unit and other support services but they want me keeping up with regular appointments with my private psychologist too). I need a new mental health plan for my next appointment from my GP who is by far the best doctor ever & I adore. The problem - the next available appointment with her is not until the end of November. Not because she is away or anything, but because she is just that busy. I don't want to have to change GPs. She knows me, knows my mental health history & life story, has a special interest in mental health (also works part time at an associated part of the mental health service I am treated by as well as headspace) and is by a long way the best doctor ever. But I can't wait that long for an appointment.
