a realization

As I was driving into my office for lunch for Secretary’s Day (aka Administrative Professionals Day), I was thinking about how I was doing so great with Fourdatzky being added to our family.

I thought, “Wow!  I am so glad that I’m doing so well!  I’m finally learning how to relax and have a baby!  It only took 4!  I feel so great!”

Then, I stopped.

And the next thought that came to my mind was, “I’m doing so great because I’m on my MEDS!”

Silly me.

I totally can see why people think they can get off their anti-depressants.  They make you feel so great because they are doing what they are SUPPOSED to.  (well, I guess it doesn’t happen for everyone.  Some people still struggle.  I’m not trying to minimize other people’s struggles.)

I do have to say I’m so glad that I’m on Zoloft.  And I’m so glad we started it BEFORE Fourdatzky was born.  This has been the easiest transition of all 4.  Being on my meds has been so so SO worth it.

    Hurray for you!I had an awful time after my second was born. My docs and my mom-in-law knew something was wrong but I kept insisting I was fine.
    Lucky for me, my mom-in-law helped out A LOT while I dealt with my own issues. It would have been SO much smarter to get help at that time.

    Funny thing is NOW (14 years after my last baby was born) I take Xanax.

    I can be SO stubborn.

    I'm really glad you are feeling so much better than last time.
