Talk to a doctor. PPD is NOT your fault! But you do need to seek help, medication and/or counseling.

Honestly I feel the same way too. I have a 9 year old and 2 year old and have battled it the entire time. I love my children but I struggle with motherhood. It’s a daily struggle and I feel terrible because of it.

Look into social groups around your town or isolation will get the best of you. Hit up a park, try to talk to other people during the day even if it’s a quick hello… don’t dwell on your sad thoughts too long. It’s ok to be sad, the fact that you worry about being a bad mom shows that you’re caring. You’re on the right path, just breathe :heart::heart: self care, hot baths and sleep girly. You got this !

I trink many parents, have moments where they don’t enjoy parenthood. It’s hard, especially if you don’t get time for yourself.
Counseling helps, outlets help, but it’s great your seeking advice. Your baby is a divine little soul and the creator gifted you this little human to take care of.
Breathe- make a plan… seek out supportive resources and dig deep for patience… parenting classes are always helpful, even utube videos, about dealing with a 2 year old…

Ppd is hard I struggle with depression daily and they just have to get you on the right meds for you to feel better, keep in mind that it can take up to 2 weeks before you will feel the effects of the meds. Having a 2tr old is hard to begin with . Mine are 3 & 2 and drive me bronkers some days. Hang in there girl

First of all see your doctor ASAP. If you don’t work get a job so you get adult interaction and using your brain for other things besides Mommy.

What you’re going through is by far way more common than you actually think. You’re reaching out looking for answers so you’re already being better than you think you are. I dont have kids so I cant offer advice but want you to know it is super common and you are not alone. Good luck.

Girl life can be so much better if the only relationship you work on is with you son and a doctor for yourself til you feel normal again. Don’t be afraid to reach out for help. Do you work? If not get a part time job. Working always does wondersm
