I’m sure you have been wondering why I have been strangely silent over the last few weeks. Well, here’s the deal. I am having postpartum issues. True story. A few weeks ago I had the flu and never seemed to really recover from it. Instead, I felt like I was spiraling downward rapidly.
In all of our challenges over the years, I have never had this kind of experience before. I am amazed at the reality of postpartum depression and how it feels to wonder if this person that you have become will be like this forever. I was shocked by how quickly it snuck up on me – but grateful that I was able to recognize it quickly and get some help.
Jason has been wonderful. I am so grateful he works at home as well so that I don’t feel quite so alone. I am doing much better over the last few days but it’s been tricky for a few weeks. I haven’t been able to accomplish much and that includes my blog. But we’re moving forward. I have strategies of how I have been doing that and will write about those later. Today I mostly just wanted to give you a heads up as to what is going on and why there isn’t a download again this week.
But don’t worry! Moving forward is what life is all about and so I’ll be back on track soon. I really am doing better than I was a few weeks ago so I have hope that all will be well. Little Cole has been my saving grace – but again, I’ll write about how later. Thanks for all of your support, love, encouragement and care via cyberspace.
I’ll be back soon – you can count on it. Here’s a photo for your viewing pleasure of Jason playing with the Cole-meister in the Bumbo. (And for those of you wondering – we only have him up on the counter when we are right there hanging on to him so he is safe and sound – never fear! It’s a great way for Jason to get on his level – face to face and grin to grin.)
