Persistence isn’t always a good thing

I had another breakdown today.

I’m not even really sure what happened, but I know it had something to do with a dirty house and I’m pretty sure there was well-intended joke from my husband.

Side note: I think he’s right that I’ve lost some of my sense of humor.

(But don’t tell him I said that.)

Before I knew what was happening, I was alone in the house, collapsed on my bed in a fit of tears.

What the fuck?

Postpartum depression can be such a persistent bitch.

    I gave birth last week, and I’ve been keeping an eye on my “sads” for the last few days. Luckily I’m feeling better today, but I hear you on the innocent comments gone wrong. My husband sent me an innocent email about some groupon to go do something with his friends, and I definitely freaked, like, how nice for you to be able to do things with your friends at whim when I am home with a baby strapped to me! I know this will change soon, but during the first week home, it wasn’t what I needed to hear.

    Hang in there!!

    Hugs, lady. Like Katelin said, I’m not a mom either and don’t know what it’s like, but I feel for you and am proud that you’re talking about your postpartum stuffs.

    Aww, hun. :/ It’s not easy to try to push through it when you’re feeling it (and even without the post partum part, I can attest that depression is, oh, not the party you’d wish it were) but know you’re a strong cookie who will mosh on through this. The very fact you can BLOG it means you recognize those moments and you’re already working toward the light. 🙂
