THE STORY:

In the months following my son's birth, I went from feeling joy in being a mother to feeling...nothing. Apathy set in, until I noticed rage taking over where there was once joy, or sadness, or frustration. My range of emotions had scaled down to 2: numbness and rage. I felt ashamed and like a complete failure. I wished I'd never had a second kid, and at one point I was so far into the depths of PPD that my then 3 year old one day said to me, with worried tears in her eyes: "It's ok Mami, Papi will be home soon. It's ok. You're gonna be ok." That was when I knew I needed some help. 

With the help of my incredible family, friends, therapist and #teamzoloft, I climbed out of that darkness. And wow, it is so much nicer out here and feel so good to feel like myself again.
