I just want my life back. I’m only 23 years old and I’m consumed by this screaming baby and my mental health is not good. I haven’t slept longer than 2 hours at a time since the day before I went into labor and just I want my life back so bad. I want to be happy for my 4 month old son and I just can’t be.
I’m really worried about myself. I’ve been crying so much that my face hurts. My baby just won’t sleep alone. He just won’t.
talk to your family practitioner for local resources, it is a huge adjustment & be proud of how much you have done for your little one, it's. not. easy. hang in their, sleeping will get better, try some sleep training books if you wish, he is old enough now :) if you might be struggling with ppd there are lots of resources and your not alone <3 give yourself credit, that doesn't sound enjoyable to anyone, everyone needs some sleep <3
