I'm self diagnosing a mild case of the baby blues over here...
I was warned this might happen.
I tend to be somewhat of a pessimist. I call myself a realist, but deep down I know I'm just a downer sometimes.
This isn't great of me, but my motto is "Hope for the best, but expect the worst." So, knowing this about myself, Ian and I were both a little concerned I'd develop Postpartum Depression which is much worse than baby blues.
Luckily, I'm doing just fine, but every once in a while I just cry for no reason.
Ian is like, "What is it, honey? You can tell me."
And I'm like, "It's really nothing I'm just sad."
And I almost always feel empty and dry-- especially when I'm nursing! (I told Ian that I'm like physically and mentally thirsty when I'm feeding Greyer... it's weird.)
Has this happened to any of you?
Even though it's normal, I feel so embarrassed!
I'm literally the happiest I have ever ever been.
My life is so full of love and life.
And here I am appreciating it all yes, but just feeling lonely and sad inside.
I am trying to soak up as much of Jesus as I can, but that joy lasts only for a moment these days.
This isn't a cry for help, really. I am fine. I just don't like the way sadness feels. Especially when it's there for no reason other than hormones.
P.S. Tomorrow is CopyCat Friday! I will be choosing one of your looks to feature over the weekend, so get snappin'!
