Having suffered from anxiety and depression on and off before I had kids, I was well aware of post partum depression. When I became pregnant the first time, I socialized my fear of PPD with my husband and my drs. and we were ready, prepared for whatever came. I delivered my son and not a symptom in site. We were both happy and healthy and my fear dissipated. Then I gave my birth to my daughter and post partum depression swallowed me whole. I once described it as floating in a Vaseline jar. I knew there was life outside of the jar and I fought to get all of the goop out of the way so I could see through to the outside. With the help of an amazing therapist and Lexapro, I survived. Because of the stigma, it took me far too long to acknowledge that I needed meds. I am so grateful to all of my people who helped me through that time and that my baby girl is thriving. I know we could have had a very different ending.
