Post-traumatic stress

I may have been denying it, but I think I am experiencing this.

My sister said it must have been the result of my birthing experience and the damaging events of Ondoy three months after Zee was born.

Hubby said it’s just a small thing, no issue should be drawn out of it. If my husband starts to look somewhere, you can blame it on me.

My sister said that to get past this, I should get back to my old routine. She suggested I do the things I did before I gave birth, probably buy myself new clothes and stuff, and also have a makeover. It may help, she said.

I guess I better start now, before relationships get strained.

      I think I haven’t been doing the “sleep well” part. Baka yun ang kulang. Thanks so much, sis!

    You can do it! Just think of happy times, and the even happier times that will come. But don’t repress bad memories. I remember a friend telling me that we may survive because we forget but we are more meaningful when we remember 🙂

      Thanks, Mel. I guess masyado lang ako nagde-dwell dun sa mga nangyari the past few months. Sige, happy thoughts, happy thoughts… 🙂

    Been there sis. It would also help if you can talk to people who can relate to what you’re feeling.

    Take it slow. Have time away from Zee and everyone else. It helps a lot.

    Kayang-kaya mo yan sis!

      Yun din ang sabi ng sister ko. Maybe I just need time for myself. Thanks, sis.

    Go out and meet people especially friends you’ve been hanging out with before the baby. I know you enjoy being with your bub but sometimes it helps to be away for a while and unwind.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog by the way and including it in your blogroll. Really appreciate another mother reading it.

      Thanks for the advice, sis. You’re right, I really want to be with my baby all the time, but I guess I need time for myself as well.

    I hope you’ll feel better, sis. Surround yourself with the people you love and yes, go shopping. Pamper yourself. 🙂

    Aww, sis.. normal lang yan pero wag ka masyado padadala ha? I also experienced that pero yung sa akin post partum blues. I didn’t know na post partum blues yun until I read about it. Basta ang naaalala ko, lagi akong naiinis sa asawa ko, and I was so weepy then. Magagalit talaga ako kahit mababaw lang na bagay yun. Good thing at di naman ako ganun towards sa baby ko. It probably ended 10 months after I gave birth. I told my hubby about it and he just brushed it off his shoulders. He just couldn’t understand it and that made my depression worse. Good thing at okay na ako ngayon. Sis, you need to divert your attention to something else. Go out and have fun, shop with your girlfriends (if you’re that type of person who feels happy after shopping), buy stuff for yourself, and treat yourself!
