Sometimes it rains....

Ok, well I'm going to be really honest with this blog. The last week was a blur to me. I cannot thank my wonderful husband, loving mom, and countless friends who have been so supportive with phone calls, prayers, and stopping by.

I never thought I would be the one to go through it and at first normal crying and sadness seemed like "baby blues", but I hit a bit of a bottom last Thursday. Anxiety and panic (niether of which I've ever exeperienced before) kept me awake for three solid days....no sleep. It was a very, very scary thing....everyone is telling you YOU HAVE to sleep....and you just can't. You hear every sound...you watch the clock. It's madening. I finally went to a couple of doctors on Thursday and got some medicine to ease anxiety on Friday. I pretty much slept Friday through Sunday. This is where my wonderful family and friends have come in to help take care of my little angel.

Things are looking better. God is in control. I am trying to get back to breastfeeding as soon as I can if possible within the next couple of weeks. So thank you so much for your prayers, your help, and encouragement. Just know that if you ever need help...all you have to do is ask.

I so know where you are at. I went through it with both of the girls. It is a very hard and trying time. Hang in there. It does get better. Let me know if you ever want to walk on over and hang out. We would LOVE to have the company!!! Seriously!!!

Oh Melissa, I am so glad you are feeling better. You sound like you are doing MUCH better from when I talked to you last week. Like I told you last week, motherhood is a big adjustment for everyone- you are not alone. Glad you got some much needed rest and glad you are feeling better.
