Isaac’s perception and awareness of emotion makes me so proud, amongst the many other not-so-delightful things about our three year old hurricane. We have worked hard on ‘naming’ our emotions since we entered the toddler years, and a frequent question from him is ‘are you happy, sad or angry?’ (They are clearly our three most talked about!) and the look of sincerity on his face when he asks breaks my heart with the cuteness! He does little things, like constantly picking me ‘flowers’ (dandelions... #samesame) because: ‘this will make you happy Mummy. Are you happy now?’ And how can you possibly not be happy when your little boy cares enough to even mention it 🌼🌱💕

life_as_katiet. DEPRESSION UPDATE- i am Saying this because who knew- that you had to

DEPRESSION UPDATE- i am Saying this because who knew- that you had to wean off antidepressants!? Through ten months of hard work and changing medicines and strengths I believe I found one that works. It’s in a different category than my previous one so I have to wean off that one ( it doesn’t work for me ) however you can’t just stop cold turkey due to withdrawal symptoms your body will experience. With that being said I have tried weaning off twice only for the symptoms to get so bad I started the meds again. It was very scary for me and I had no idea it was this tricky! I went from a pill strength of 20 to cutting my pills into 4s to wean off. I get dizzy - headaches- and DEPRESSION with a vengeance! I thought the depression meant that I needed the medicine but with research it’s actually a side effect of withdrawal !? Which in turn makes you believe you need the medication but in reality it’s just part of the weaning. Well with that being said I’m just accepting my weaning process is going to be slower in hopes that the withdrawal symptoms aren’t as strong! Currently down to 5 strength and hoping after a few weeks at that I can stop but if not I’ll go down to 2.5 strength 😯 let me just say - those withdrawal symptoms are NO JOKE

thepostnatalproject. The highlight reel.

Is not real!

And I'm not just talking about Inst

The highlight reel. Is not real! And I'm not just talking about Instagram. I'm talking about real life. I've had people tell me before that I make having two kids look so easy. People say that they wish they had my patience. They see me at playgroup or in the supermarket and although I do place a high importance on gentleness, consciousness and compassion with my kids, it isn't always so. There is balance. And that's okay! When you see people out and about, it's not that they are on their "best behaviour", but they do fear judgement and that does mean that what you see is their highlight reel. So if you yelled at your kids on the way to school drop off or wanted to cry in the shower because you'd been up all night, please know that these are all relatively normal responses to the pressures of parenthood. You don't have to be living your highlight reel all the time. Please be gentle with yourself and give yourself permission to come undone. And the times that you do see a mum absolutely exasperated in public, do not judge! Help where you can or smile if you don't have capacity - and that goes a long way.

withlovelima. SCHULDGEVOELENS • Vaak als ik naar hem kijk voel ik alleen maar schuld

SCHULDGEVOELENS • Vaak als ik naar hem kijk voel ik alleen maar schuldgevoelens. Na zijn geboorte werd ik depressief. Zijn eerste jaar is voor mij een grote wazige vlek. Knuffels en kusjes kan ik me amper herinneren, soms vraag ik me af hoe ik het ooit goed kan maken. Mijn man zegt altijd, hij weet het niet joh. Maar ik weet het wel. Is schuldgevoel niet het ergste gevoel wat er is? Ik kan eigelijk niks opnoemen wat ik goed heb gedaan, wel tientallen dingen die ik niet goed deed. De dagen dat ik naar hem keek met een lach kan ik me niet herinneren maar de dagen dat ik mezelf aan de haren trok zijn in mijn geheugen gebrand. Toen kwam Safouan, een klein stemmetje in mij zei, maak niet dezelfde fout, doe alles goed wat je bij Naoufal verkeerd hebt gedaan. Waardoor ik soms weer te gefocust ben op Safouan en mijn man wel eens zegt: je hebt nog 2 kinderen. Dan beginnen de schuldgevoelens weer opnieuw want dan heb ik naar mijn gevoel Safouan teveel aandacht gegeven en de andere kinderen buiten gesloten. Ik stel hele hoge eisen aan mezelf, onhaalbare eisen eerlijk gezeg. Ik ben een perfectionist & control freak wat het eigelijk onmogelijk maakt een keer trots op mijzelf te zijn. Heb jij wel een schuldgevoelens en hoe ga jij daar mee om? . . . . . . . #momquilts #parentingishardwork #parenthood #honestblog #honestfeelings #postpartumdepression #depressionconfessions #lovemyson #alhamdulilah #motherandson

After being in A&

(Continued from previous post) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After being in A&E for most of the day, I was eventually moved to a ward where I mostly slept & tried to make sense of the situation. Forty eight hours & several blood tests later, I was left with liver damage & a heavy sense of remorse. I returned to the ward & retreated to my bed for 3 days. I felt so hopeless & couldn’t see how to move forward. During that time I recalled a quote that I’d read; What you might be today, you do not have to be tomorrow. It was enough realise that only I could make that initial change. Only I could make myself get up & get dressed. There were so many people ready to help me but I needed to be ready to accept that support & change my thinking. Despite some small setbacks, I haven’t looked back since. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The fact that this was documented on camera, gave me a chance to see it from another person’s perspective. Whilst you are in it, you can’t see the damage that it’s doing to those close to you. It sort of feels like a kick to stomach on many levels but I feel grateful that I have been given that chance to understand other people’s views. It’s only recently that I’ve learnt even the doctor, Trudi felt a level of distress that night that’s stayed with her. It’s something now that I want to talk about so hopefully we can all take things from each side and learn from them.

. What goes through a persons mind when they decide they no longer want to be alive? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Why would someone shovel handfuls of paracetamol down there throat in the hope that it would cause toxicity severe enough to shut down organs? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Why do they accept help to save them when there was so much intent to die in the first place? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ Exactly a year later, these are questions I still ask myself yet I never seem to have a clear answer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ It wasn’t a premeditated decision. I didn’t wake up & think that today was the day I was going to attempt to end my life. I left the ward that evening to help a friend in distress, but the situation I soon found myself in became very overwhelming. Coupled with my already incredibly depressive mindset, I saw an opportunity & it was then that I decided I was going to attempt to leave this world. I wanted to shut down. I wanted to end the torrent of abuse in my own head. I wanted to be free of that weight of despair, & it was that moment that I felt that my actions were right. No one could have saved me at that point. Several hours later, I did have a slap of reality when I started to feel very ill & I made contact with Chris in the early hours of the morning to let him know my location. I was taken to A&E where blood tests showed extremely high levels of paracetamol. I was immediately put on an N-acetylcysteine (NAC) drip whilst I vomited, suffered with stomach pains & sweat profusely. I was given anti-sickness medication but the vomiting continued for quite a few hours. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ (Continued on the next post)

Postpartu

(This isn’t for attention but for a realistic awareness) • • Postpartum depression is so weird isn’t it? You’re extremely happy and then all of a sudden your mind goes else where you get overwhelmed and than your basically bawling your eyes out and do you know the reason? Odds are probably not. At least i didn’t and sometimes still don’t. I’m not depressed for attention. I’m not depressed because my life sucks because that’s far from it. Mentally i couldn’t tell you why i’m depressed. My kids are the reason i wake up and push everyday. It’s okay to have moments, were all human were going to break down here and there that doesn’t make us any less of who we genuinely are. • But you don’t know everyone’s story. “Don’t judge a book from its cover” That saying has never been more true. If you were to look at me i don’t look like a person who has struggled, who has had three unsuccessful suicide attempts, who has had no idea where i was going next. No, i look happy. I look like i know where i’m about to go next. I look like i have almost all aspects of my life together right? Oh baby, i’m far from it. • Postpartum makes you feel hopeless, unwanted, disgusting, unappreciated, lost, unattractive. You feel as if your family would be better off if you were no longer around. You want to talk to someone but your mind tells you over and over again that you’re a bother to others and that they don’t want to hear your problems because then it’s their baggage. You think of all the ways to basically disappear and then you feel guilty. ~ ~ Postpartum depression is so unexpected and unexplainable. • • I want you to know that you aren’t alone. I’m listening others are listening. I would take any “baggage” just to know your still here. I promise things will in fact get better. You’re so strong mama! Things may seem so blurry and unexplainable right now but i promise god has such a bigger picture for you and this is just a hill🖤 I love you so much and i’m so proud of you, you are not alone. #suicideawarness #postpartumdepression #yournotalone #strongwomen #yougotthis

Anxiety is a powerful thing. Certainly it’s not that simple sometimes, however, there are times when a small seed of anxiety is planted and we can continue to foster, pester and talk ourselves into an anxiety that has grown out of control. We build ourselves up. We tear selves down. We create a space in our mind to be nervous, anxious, irritable, and terrified of what’s to come. In those situations, when we are so powerful as to be able to talk ourselves into anxiety, just remember, we can also talk ourselves out. Give yourself some space to think logically, do a rewind, and start the journey to talk yourself out. . . . #anxiety #postpartumdepression #postpartumanxiety #speakthesecret #motherhood #mothersofinstagram #aprn #nursepractitioner #nurse #therapy #therapyisdope #healthcareprovider #ourmindisapowerfulthing #bekindtoyourself

Hey Mama scrolling Facebook and Instagram ! I hope you know you can unfollow all the folks who don’t make you feel better! I just did and it feels great ✌🏼 And FYI - I’m included. I hope I show you every day what REAL mommy life is like. I had a mommy friend message me yesterday. She was fed up seeing the grammers posting about magic quick fixes that make their life perfect. You know... weight loss, marriage problems, PPD - all gone because of one quick fix. And the truth is - it’s unfair to put that message out there. Post partum is a real thing. And if someone is struggling and thinking a quick fix will help them, they are prolonging the decision to take real action and seek medical attention. If they try this quick fix they may see short term results but a quick fix can’t cure real depression. And when they find themselves feeling just like before - it will end up being worse. Because more time has gone by without them seeking real attention. And worse yet, they feel like total failures because they saw that person on Instagram rocking life and they aren’t able to do the same. PPD affects 1 in 7 women. These are women that may have never experienced depression. Women who may workout. Who may eat clean. Women who may have a successful career or women who stay home and have a spouse that loves and adores them. My point? Don’t be fooled. PPD affects women of all backgrounds. If you find yourself feeling like you may need help - seek help. Don’t turn to a quick fix because you saw someone post a picture of their life and claim it’s perfect. There’s always more to everyone’s story ✌🏼
