Eloquently said, Heather!
Boy oh boy can I relate this week. It has been one of those weeks. Our children are also very young. That definitely makes the difference. PLUS, I think that the third child is the hardest. As a friend of ours told me, “Now you have more kids than hands.” There’s so much truth in that.
Something about odd numbers, too, I think. Our kids tend to pair off to play at home. The third becomes the extra “wheel” that needs so much more of your attention.
Hang in there…keep seeing your doctor (PPD IS a medical condition – certainly NOT any type of failing!!!) If the meds he has given you aren’t working, don’t be afraid to ask for something else! I’ll say a prayer for you!
