i had thought you were going through some tough things on myspace.
I hated the daily routine, i began to feel like i had no life. Baby sleeps, you clean up and then at it again.
Breastfeeding is very exhausting and you gave it your best so be proud of that. Being on formula doesnt mean that you are depriving her coz the formula out now is just as good.
I agree about the anti depressants OR have you thought about that natural medicine called \"St Johns Wart\"
That might be good too to boost you up.
Wait til she starts moving about and then youll be keeping busy! i love the floppy little baby stage but you cant do anything with them.

Hey Sarah...people DO care and people do want to help you. You can talk to me anytime and I will always listen. And I do care.

My first thought is to be wary with anti-depressants, and see a counsellor first to determine whether you need them or not. Maybe even talking to a counsellor will help.

My heart goes out to you...I don't know what to say because I have just come out of a depressed stage right now...I really feel what you are saying, it's like every day you just heave yourself out of bed...but you CAN get through this, I finally am starting to, there is a light at the end of the tunnel; but to be on the safe side, it's best to go see a counsellor who will be able to help you, just having that person to lean on is so much easier.

I'll keep you in my prayers, and if you ever need to vent, don't hesitate to write to me, I really understand how you're feeling and I can really relate!

hey, girl, i totally understand how u feel because thats what I'm going through right now. My boyfriend and I are complete opposites. He's really strong to the point where he's cold. When I had my miscarriages, I felt indifferent about them didnt, I didnt show too much emotion. Then I found myself not being able to sleep at night. I would stay up for hours and dwell on all the mistakes I made and everything that had went wrong in the past. On top of that my boyfriend and I used to have major arguments. we lived with his mother so she saw and heard everything which was quite embarassing. Then I would cry about anything at the drop of a dime. What really hurt is that my boyfriend didnt seem concerned about any of it. I just feel so unhappy. I'm so unhappy that I don't know what would make me happy. I spoke to a psychologist, who I see once a week. It really helps. It's nice just to talk to someone who doesn't know you and won't judge. I'm still struggling everyday and it's really difficult. The part is the night when I can't sleep and my bf is getting on my nerves. The psychologist told me the best thing to do was make a change do something that you always wanted to do but never got the chance and stop feeling sorry for yourself. hope my advice helps. I know its hard for me and I can only imagine how hard it is with a newborn baby. p.s your daughter is beautiful!

I know exactly how you feel. I was an absolute emotional mess after having my daughter. Like you the babys father was with somebody else, also a fact that didnt bother me until after she arrived. I would go to bed every night crying. Wake up crying. Spend the whole day crying and wishing the world would end. Wishing my life would end, reaching snapping point where i was either going to live or i was going to kill myself. Its a very scary place to be. I didnt want my baby, and even started adoption counselling. Things were far from the rosy picture people keep telling you motherhood is supposed to be. Get yourself some help asap...id hate to hear things getting worse (though im here to chat if they do...talking is better than bottling it up which just makes you feel worse).

Thank you both so much, you have helped me more than I thought possible. Your words have helped me sort through my emotions and come to terms with them. I'm currently trying to get a hold of medicaid, they have yet to send me my card and until they do I cant get any medication.
It could take weeks.
I'm doing my best to stop this feeling from swallowing me up and taking over my life. I have to stay strong for my daughter. Its easier said than done when so little can make you smile.

Once again, thank you for everything.
