Cyndie, I'm thinking of what to write. Depression after baby, not to mention 'normal' highly emotional state with all those hormones....

Not many want to put their infant in daycare--but every mom I know, depressed, in pain, or healthy loves and craves time to one's self. You might feel you've already tapped everyone, but maybe you haven't. (Part truth, maybe, but also part fiction? Sounds like your folks might not be available.) I've been
looking at part-time childcare for my young child through our local community college. There are some really nice
students in the early education program that like part time work. And some
people really love looking after infants.

Some reassurance from your therapist would be great--should be forthcoming. Can you ask her directly how available she is? Cripes, I found my therapist with doctor number four. He 'saw' me. But doc shopping in a crisis is really rough.

Are you on meds now besides pain
meds? And don't let some doctor or nurse try to shame or induce guilt for taking pain medicine. That's their agenda. Remember that. Do you have a good psychiatrist? (Insurance?) They can help oversee meds.

When I found myself with only vicodin to deal with pain, I needed to take an
amount that was a depressant for me. And it made me very dull witted.

Thank you so much for writing. I'm sad to think of your Christmas Eve. Keep thinking that you will get out of this. You will.

Please keep writing and posting if you care to. Do you ever journal?


MDD and C-PTSD. Chronic fatigue and pain. Good response to Cymbalta.
