After I had Teag we had our well baby appointment with our nurse.
They make you do a quiz, I think it had 10 questions. maybe more.
Trying to see if you have postpartum depression.
I answered the way I thought they wanted me to answer.
Everything is fine.
Life is great.
I’m adjusting well.
There was so much going on in our lives.
Having family live with us.
Having a baby.
The nurse checked the quiz.
I was one point off from having postpartum depression.
I laughed it off.
There is no way that I was depressed.
I had a happy husband.
An adorable baby.
In my heart I know that I was depressed.
Things didn’t feel right, Rich could tell.
I felt crazy in my own head.
Like I was in a fog.
It wasn’t until Teag was 6 months old that I started to get out of my funk.
I finally could see straight.
I felt like something clicked.
I felt like I could finally handle everything.
Being a wife.
When I found out I was pregnant with Arlo, I was terrified.
Terrified that I would feel the same as I felt after having Teag.
I have yet to take that quiz again.
This time, I have changed a few things.
Healthier meals. More veggies.
vitamins. Last time I hardly took anything. This time I take vitamin C, D, flinstone chewables, calcium, and folic acid. I can definitely feel a difference when I take them.
Exercise. It’s not as often as I would like. Due to having two kids, my time is precious. When I can get a workout in, I am happy.
I feel healthy.
And for the most part, I feel happy.
