I have made no secret that for the last 5 months I have been battling severe #pnd.
I don't post for sympathy or for attention. I post because there could be just one person reading this that feels less alone, less afraid of what they are feeling and comforted that someone else feels like this.
I have been published on #vocal.
There is a sneak peak to post here, to view full post link in bio and at bottom of post 👇
Post Natal Depression isn’t pretty, it is dark, bitter, resentful and angry.
It is a parasite that has sucked the life out of me, and taken away my hope, my joy.
One thing I have on my side is that I can talk, it cannot.
It can control me, and make me have dark thoughts, say horrible things but I can be honest.
Honest that someone will hear me and understand, to say what I am feeling is normal.
The more this happens, the smaller it gets.
The more I get my life back and be the mother I know I can be to stop the numbness of motherhood.
