    Yeah, I had it seventh child... really hard to even remember - I was so unable to do anything but take care of my baby - and even that was hard.... the rest of the children suffered along with me...

    This is a quote from my journal at the time....

    "Grey, foggy, uncertainty
    Unable to move
    Total lack of motivation
    Still, yet not at peace
    Quiet, yet unquieted
    I sit in sweet silence, amid chaotic mess
    A beautiful baby sleeping; sweetly unaware of unending stress
    She awakens; simple needs; love, food, warmth, care.
    My mind is uneasy
    Simple things left undone
    What seems easy for others, a struggle
    I feel hopeless, drained..."

    Get some medical help - it is real - and hard to deal with...
    You and your baby deserve to get the help and support you need!
