Same sh...ake, different day. 🙊🙈 Ok, to be honest, I haven’t felt like myself lately. After you have a baby everything changes, everything. After my newborn high wore off, I started feeling not like myself & that’s something I never really talk about. My body’s different, I can’t be carefree anymore, the marriage alters a bit because we’re constantly focusing on the baby & even simple things like walking out the door aren’t quick & easy anymore.
Being a stay at home mom who used to work around a bunch of others & my “office” being outside working on Patriot missiles all day or in the motor pool, staying at home inside nearly all the time started taking a toll on me. I’ve never been one to be depressed because I have always handled myself very well emotionally & I thought postpartum depression wasn’t a real thing. Well, it is. Never once did I ever regret having her! 🙅🏻♀️ It was more on my part, personally. All I wanted was to feel like myself again & not be in milk soaked T-shirt’s & feeling sweaty with a messy bun 24/7.
As always, I decided to make a change instead of stay in that season of life for too long. I got up, started going for walks, I’m changing my lifestyle & being healthy & I’m learning to be myself again & do things that are important to me, so I can be a better not only for myself but for my fam. 💕 & it’s never felt so good. Love this journey that I’m on.
