Not Feeling Myself

Sorry for the lack of blogging recently. I have not been feeling myself at all. Looking after two children under 3 years of age is hard work and I have been trying to keep lots of balls in the air at the same time. I have been beating myself up trying to be the perfect mom and wife and have been feeling guilty for not getting everything done.

I went to the doctors this morning and have been told I may have a bad case of the baby blues or mild postnatal depression. I have been told to take more time for myself and do things that I want to do, then go back in a couple of weeks and see if I am feeling better. If I do not feel better, I maybe referred to counsellng.

I am hoping that I have caught this early enough and in a few weeks time, I will be back to my normal self. I love blogging but due to lots of sleepless nights with Daniel and busy days chasing after Thomas, it has become, along with many other things, a bit of a chore. I have lots of lovely review products to tell you about and I want to give my blog a bit of make over too. However, I realise now that I need to break my massive to do list (not just related to blogging) down into smaller chunks and take everything one step at a time.

I will get through it. I will not let anything like this beat me. I am better than that. I am going to find the positive in every day and start doing #3goodthings with my friend and fellow blogger Karin of Cafe Bebe

Have you suffered with baby blues/PND? Any advice you can give me please? Thank you for reading this post and understanding. It is greatly appreciated x

  2. Oh Jo, I’m so sorry you’re having a rough time. It’s so tough fitting everything in, or not fitting it all in and feeling crap isn’t it? Be kind to yourself. xx

  3. I’m afraid I have no advice but it’s good that you have seen the doctor and they are helping you. I do sympathise as I will be having my second child in a week’s time and have been worrying about how I will manage as well as fit in all the non-child/baby related things I want to do. I hope you feel better soon.
