THE STORY:

Postpartum Depression.

It Is...
It is the mother who keeps her baby covered, fearful that open air might get him sick.
It is the mother who is happy to pass her baby off to a friend because it gives her a moment of relief.
It is the mom with the dark circles under her eyes, who hasn't showered in three days.
It is the mom who is in full makeup and her designer jeans for a quick run to the store.
It is the mom who has yelled at her infant.
It is the mom who ditches all of your plans at the last minute.
It is the mom who has an activity planned every single day.
It is the woman yelling at her spouse in public.
It is the mom throwing her water bottle in anger.
It is the spotless home.
It is the woman, out for a jog, trying to run away from it all.
It is the mom you glared at when her baby wouldn't stop crying on the airplane.
It is the mom you sighed disapprovingly at because her stroller was taking up too much space on the sidewalk.
It is the mother walking around with a big smile on her face.
And tears behind it.
It is rage and anger and fear.
It is sadness and worry and discouragement.
It is regret and disappointment.
It can be so many things, but what it needs to be is talked about.
It is not something to hide or be embarrassed by.
I ask you to take it easy on those moms.
I ask you to take it easy on yourself.
I ask you to speak up, reach out, get support.
If you question if it is effecting you, just once, it probably is. We can help one another.
