    So proud of you for sharing, I know this will help many mothers out there feel not alone, and to go see their Dr.
    As for others, who are suffering in silence with any kind of depression, please don’t be ashamed or afraid to seek medical help. It is also helpful to surround yourself with loving, compassionate, positive people. The stigma stops here! ❤

    I went through something similar when my son was 6 months. I thought I was in the clear from PPD and didn’t even know PPA was a thing. The anxiety got so bad that I couldn’t sleep and I was overwhelmed by simple tasks. Thankfully, I went to my doctor after prompting from friends and family. I can’t imagine suffering in silence! It was a very scary time and it took awhile for me to accept that it was nothing to be ashamed of and that I can’t control it. Getting help is so important.

    • I’m sorry you went through that! More awareness is definitely needed for PPA. We’re given so much information as new mothers about PPD that we get confused when it takes a different form or happens later postpartum. You’re a strong mama! So glad you realize it wasn’t your fault and found the support you needed. xo
