A more somber post today...Having a child is mostly fun and games. But it is also one of the hardest things you could ever do. I was asked to remind mommies out there that there are local area resources available to handle the emotionally trying times of being a mom. Our area has a lot of support, and you should never, ever shy from using it. Postpartum Depression is very real and can be very lonely. Don't be scared to ask for help.
First, talk with your doctor and/or pediatrician. Don't waste time, call them as soon as you feel you need to talk.
Second, Parenting.com ran an article not too long ago (picked up by CNN) where they interviewed people in our area. It helps to know you are not alone, and it also helps to know there are programs out there. UNC-Chapel Hill hospital has a ground breaking program to help postpartum moms. http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/11/10/postpartum.depression/index.html
Third, there are support networks out there, as well, run by professionals who can help you navigate the emotional stress of the hormones, the sleep deprivation, and the stress of being a mother.
We'll now resume your regular light-hearted posts. But know that there are all sort of wonderful resources here in your town.
