I cannot pinpoint the exact moment that I lost my sense of self, but it happened somewhere along the way to becoming a wife and mother. One minute I’m full of hopes and dreams, the next I’m just going through the motions.
While gazing at my newborn, the doctor and a trainee began to encourage my placenta out. Once this was done, all hell seemed to break loose. The small birthing room filled with what seemed to be near 20 people.
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with childcare.
Though I value the social interaction my kids experience, Mr4, being a very shy and anxious little boy, has always struggled with the daycare environment.
Like every other parent I know, I have tried to instill in my children the importance of honesty. Yet, I have certainly told my fair share of white lies in my time – to trick my boys into eating things, to protect their feelings and their innocence.
Two days later I had two psychiatrists looking at me in the eye and saying those words. Post Natal Depression. PND.
No way, I told them. My baby has reflux, I am exhausted. This is normal. Don’t mothers with PND want to kill themselves or their baby? Screw that. That’s not me.
