Not Just a Hard Time

    Wow!!! This was/still is me…I had my second child on December 3, 2017…4 days shy of a year from my first who was born December 7, 2016…and it was a very traumatic birth, not for baby but me. So, different from my first, I developed acute renal failure, and retention due to the birth and was hospitalized 4 days after she was born because I went into septic shock and has lost all use of my faculties and wore a catheter for 3 weeks because my body would just not wake up and function. After this was clear the depression and anxiety were in full force…I thought I was crazy, no one would understand the words PPD were almost taboo in my realm of friends/family…and I remained quiet for 4 months struggling all by myself…at home, alone with my 2 babies…it was agonizing, not mothering…but the fear and constant doubt of myself, until MY mother saw something was wrong, and took me to see my dr herself, I sought treatment, and finally got the help I had been seeking/longing. It’s been 3 months since and I’m slowly becoming more of my “old” self, more ME! What a blessing you are for sharing your story, I wish more women/young moms would open up more about this, so some (like me) don’t feel so alone. God bless! ????
