You're not a shitty mom.
You're doing everything you possibly can to get help because you know this isn't normal. That's admirable. A lot of people feel that way and don't even try. You will be okay. He will be okay. Your whole family will be okay. It'll just take some time and getting use to.
Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:" No, that's not really an option. With him being in school and Sean couldn't be away from Layla. Their ... [snip!] ... I'm happy that you have your time to yourself. That really sounds awesome. I've always wanted to learn how to play guitar :)"
Roman definitely gets depressed. But I just couldn't take it anymore.
In order to take care of those around us we have to take care of ourselves first.

I'm just hoping it doesn't take a bunch of trial and error to find some meds that will work for me.
Quoting Mrs. Potato Dick:" Thanks Rikki. I'm just hoping it doesn't take a bunch of trial and error to find some meds that will work for me."
I hope it doesn't either. I was going to say going through ridiculous symptoms has got to be a bummer...
But it'll all be worth it once you get to where you feel better and Michael is feeling more wanted. Maybe plan one night out of the week for family fun night. You don't even have to do anything that requires paying attention....get all the pillows off your bed and beat the crap out of each other. I do that with Kiki a lot...she has fun...burns off energy...and saves a lot of frustration when it comes to following rules and stuff....
Sometimes I feel like this in ways...I am hoping it's just the extra hormones from pregnancy. I am more patient than I ever dreamed of being with this pregnancy...I was so impatient and ready to have my girls with my first two. We were TNTC and it happened anyways. Lately my 3 year old is a pain, she gets mad and frustrated and is that way constantly the rest of the day. She goes to preschool though, and receives therapy (she is really delayed due to a micro deletion) so that gives me a break and helps me a lot.
She is actually trying to say more words lately, she cannot use sentences yet so that makes things frustrating for her and DH and I. She takes things out on her 17 month old sister and I am constantly a referee around here..trying to teach her to be nice to her sister and not to be mad at her when she didn't even do a thing to her. I almost don't want this pregnancy to end just because I'm scared of raising three, because raising two makes me feel like I'm going to explode sometimes.
I haven't been on any medicine, I'm really just hoping it gets better and I don't have PPD like with my first child. I did talk to my OB and got some anxiety meds for when I need it only. I hope you can find something to truly help, lady. Good luck *hugs*.
