Post Natal Depression Will Not Define Me

This is how I feel sometimes. It’s not all doom and gloom but it can get very cloudy. Parenting should be fun. I should be concentrating my all on my children…but I’m not always happy doing so. 

I was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression but I’m clearing the fog with help from family and friends. I’m lucky I haven’t found it to be a big lot of quicksand that I can’t climb out of. I’ve had so much support that PND doesnt define me. But I hear you, I hear you and you’re not alone.

Sometimes I don’t feel like I can breathe

I’m trapped and I don’t know how to escape

The tiniest thing can also make me seethe

This isn’t the life I hoped to create
Sometimes I don’t feel like I can tell the truth

Because I’m not the best mum by a mile

I want to step away and press mute

It takes putting a face on for a smile
But sometimes a glimmer shines through

A hint of light I need to feel alive 

There’s so much I really want to do

So through this cloud I’ll survive 
Big hugs to every Mama and Papa not having a great time of it right now. It can get better. I promise X
