I had PPD/PPA with my first baby. I spoke to a psychotherapist and that made a big difference. Also, speaking to different moms out there about how hard everything was made me feel better. I also started to go outdoors. I tried yoga and found that to be very helpful as well. I would say for me, opening up to people I could trust was the most effective. The more I talked and the more honest I was, the more things eased up. Hope you feel better soon. : )
Thanks for the input...
Opening up to others seems to be the hardest thing right now! Even with my fiance, it's hard to let him know how I really feel. I don't want to let everyone down, you know?
I joined a exercise/dance class, and the first one was this week. It was simply amazing to get out of the house (other than work). It's off for two weeks due to holidays, but I'm hoping the routine & exercise will help.
