A little over twelve years ago I had my first child. My husband and I were very excited in his anticipation of his arrival. We he arrived I did not share the same love and excitement toward this child as my husband did. Why? What is wrong with me? I'm a terrible human being!!!
I went on feeling this way for seven lonely months. I remember feeling very isolated, depressed and alone, although I was always surrounded by loving people. I took very good care of my child even though is was a labor and I would cry while I went through the routine of the day. It was seven months later when I had a complete breakdown. My husband called the ob/gyn and got me help. There was nothing wrong with me. I didn't know that this was something many women experienced. Why didn't anyone tell me?
I am here to open a support group for those who feel that they are alone. You are not alone in these feelings, many of us have experienced the same thoughts and feelings but are to ashamed to admit them. We can gather together in a non judgmental, safe and confidential environment and share are sadness and our joys.
Just knowing that you are not alone helps!!!
