After a suggestion from Jason, I went to see my psychiatrist last week.  And, the doctor and I both agreed, I'm depressed.


It was a good session.  We pinpointed one issue is that I feel I have too many things I don't want to be doing.  

Another is that, thanks to my daytime napping, I don't sleep well at night; therefore, I feel tired and low energy all the time. Not 100% convinced with this one, since I am 36 weeks pregnant, but I am attempting no napping and getting up at the same time everyday.

We set-up future appointments.  I do feel better since that first visit.  I've been focusing, during my "free" time, on things I want to be doing, not that I feel I have to do.  And Ags and I have been having fun together.  And Jason and I too.  And, my mom arrives next week, so more helping hands.

Although we may have determined that I am down, things are looking up.

You are a rock star Cora! It was so hard for me to admit that I had postpartum depression with Ailie. I applaud you for getting help and keeping focus on your goals.
I can't say enough just how much I admire you!
