{This is life} What Post Natal Depression really feels like

Soul crushing guilt.

Shapeless days.

Horrendous threats.

The choice to have a child is a big decision, but somehow when you make that choice you don’t ever consider that you will get post-natal depression.

Read this post about what Post Natal Depression Feels Like. This story will break your heart and make you realise how many people out there are suffering and you wouldn’t even know.  post natal

This article by an anonymous author is powerful and raw:

In my head, it was perfectly normal to be slumped on the floor of my completely disheveled home when my husband walked through the door at night. I was tired and resting, leaning against the wall with my eyes closed, perfectly happy to stay that way for a couple of hours.

I was unable to move, but not too fussed about it.

My husband became used to walking through the door quietly, greeting me gently, stepping over me and taking over the care of our kids while I enjoyed my time on the floor, my mind completely blank, my body devoid of even a scrap of energy.

If you think you or someone you care about may be suffering from Post Natal Depression then please, I urge you to stand up and seek help. It is paralysing and heartbreaking but treatable.
