Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for

My husband and son.  I know it sounds cliche and maybe even a bit trite but after suffering from almost a year of post natal depression (and possible undiagnosed depression, relating to the death of my dad, before that), they are what kept me going.

In that year before being diagnosed with PND and going onto Cipralex, every time I thought about ending it, about how much easier it would be, not only for me but for everyone around me, I would stop and think to myself, but I need them, I need my husband and my son, I need the love that they give me.

They are what got me through the dark days and they are what made coming up from those downward spirals possible.

Their love for me and their unwavering support is what makes life worth living.

  1. Thank you for being brave enough to discuss depression openly.

  2. So awesome that you have such a wonderfully supportive husband.

    this post resonated hugely with me

  4. I think so many women with PND feel like they failed as mothers somewhere along the line. I am glad you have the strength to talk about it, share with others and that you found a way to get through.

  5. I think added to the depression is the fact that you don’t sleep well when you have a little one and the tiredness and all the newness of mommy-hood can be very overwhelming and exhausting. Thank you for sharing. And yes, my hubby and Baby Girl have also gotten me through a few hard moments. They are what make my life so worth while.
