    I haven't been out much in a year.

    My postpartum triggered agoraphobia in me. When I do go out it is only to run errands I absolutely have to. I've also been constantly sick this year as well. The hospital here knows me by first name. I no longer know the person I was and I hate this person I've become. How did...

    I, amazingly, woke up today with a huge,

    heavy, dark weight on my shoulders. I went from last night, whirring over the endless possibilities my life, relationship, future held for me, excited yet tired to the bone from being a new mom, to this morning feeling like the only reprieve from this wretched world is my death...

    I have postpartum depression.

    I didn't even know this was possible after a miscarriage. I feel so sad and hurt and guilty all the time. Seeing pregnant women upsets me then I feel guilty. Each day I wake up is worse than the last. I dread everything. All I want to do is sleep

    This Is So Much Harder Than I Ever Imagined
