Now that we have the car wash analogy in our minds, how do we "deal" with all that craziness? Well, I'm gonna be honest... it may sound cheesy but the first step is to admit you have a problem. Not only will it bring the whole thing into the light, it might also be a big sigh of relief for your hubby knowing that your constant frustration with him might not 100% be his fault. I take it one day at a time and constantly check myself by asking these questions.
"Am I upset?"
"Why am I upset?"
"Is it THAT big of a deal?"
"Can I fix it?"
"Do I need chocolate?"
The chocolate is just a personal preference and possibly the reason for the last 5 lbs of baby weight that magically keeps coming back. PPD is all about knowing what is going on around you and keeping yourself in check. Its not hard but eventually things will get easier.
These tips aren't for everyone. PPD comes in many different forms and if you are unsure about yourself and feel that you are at risk of harming yourself or others please consider medical help.
The main tip I can give you and that I constantly tell myself is that I am an amazing mommy, I love my children and I would do anything for them and that MUST include taking care of myself.
