Postpartum depression

Do you or someone that you know suffer from Postpartum depression?

Ok, that sounds like one of THOSE commercials.

I just recently had our 4th baby. Hold on...
Meghan, Connor, Reagan and Kennedy- Yep, that's 4.

Sometimes I lose track. haha

I have always heard women talking about postpartum depression but never really experienced the "baby blues". Well, that is until baby number 4.

2-3 weeks after having Kennedy I started feeling rather blahh...
I didn't want to eat.
I was not sleeping.
I was moody.

 Yeah, postpartum depression had come to pay me a little visit. There were a couple of times where I told my husband that I had completely SHUT DOWN.
I was not content anymore.
I had a Eh, whatever type of attitude towards everything.

It was just NOT ME!

While my case was very mild and controlled without medications, I know that there are some out there that need the meds. 

Have you ever suffered from postpartum depression or any other type of depression?
How do you handle it?

Please know that there is depression help out there.
Maybe you need to search through the depression medication list?
Maybe you can control it with prayer?
Friends, Family? Maybe they can help you cope.

Control it and do not let IT control YOU!
