It has been a seriously emotional few days! I have been diagnosed with postnatal depression today and at times I have just wanted to run away! Im sorry I snapped at you Isaac for putting a bucket on my head and I'm sorry I told you to shut up Lydia. I didn't mean it, I'm just really struggling at the moment, but just remember that you two are my life and you are my reason for living, you both mean the world to me and I will do anything to keep you both safe! We will get through this together. I love you, my beautiful children ❤️❤️ #postnataldepression #pnd #depression #mychildren #myworld #iloveyou #babyboy #babygirl
The worst thing about being a high functioning borderline is that no body believes you. #bpdawareness #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #postnataldepression #bpdproblems #
This feels very relevant on a day full of tricky NHS job stuff which has kept me away from home (and away from my girl) for longer than I would have liked. . ‘Catastrophising’ is a type of thinking error used in cognitive therapy to describe imagining the worst case scenario, or thinking the most extremely negative outcome to a situation. The first step in tackling thinking errors, is noticing when they’re happening. If you’re feeling a bit more robust, you can try challenging them: what do I mean by ‘bad’? Am I ignoring all the evidence that I’m a ‘good enough’ mum? Would my friend agree with me? It’s not a magic wand, but it might help keep the worst thoughts at bay. . You’re not a bad mama; chances are you’re having a bad day. Fingers crossed for tomorrow 🖤 . #mamanotes #mumlife #mumsofinstagram #selfcare #refillyourcup #mamadiary #mama #parenting #parenthood #motherhood #newmum #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #mybeautifulmess #dailyparenting #toddler #toddlerlife #igmums #igmotherhood #newmom #womensupportingwomen #maternalmentalhealth #postnatalanxiety #pnd #mentalhealthrecovery #postnataldepression #perinatalmentalhealth #clinicalpsychology #psychologist #everydaypsychology
#shoutieselfie Supporting Maternal Mental Health Week. It’s ok not to be ok or the story of how I went crazy. I am well aware that I look like one of those mums who’s got their shit together. I wear makeup, I often have my nails done, I have expensive sling, I don’t use word “naughty”, we don’t do “cry out”, I birthed my second baby at home, my house is mostly clean at any given moment and I’ve got a master’s degree. It’s like a weird combo of hippy high achiever person. And exactly because of that I went totally bon….nu…crazy. I was raised in the way that I was “good” if I achieved things, high grades, certificates of achievement and scholarships. And I’m not blaming my mother I know we all muddle through this parenting malarkey and do the best we can, and not all things are down to parenting maybe I’m naturally anxious and nervous. And you know getting things perfect and parenting don’t go together, but when you have certain expectations of yourself and your child that don’t work out its particularly difficult to accept if you have the kind of personality that I have. My anxiety trigger was breastfeeding. When it didn’t work, and it didn’t work I can openly and honestly talk about it after years of struggling to accept it, and feeling like a “failure”, it send my brain that was struggling with post birth hormones, sleep deprivation and isolation overboard. But because I was too busy looking after my son, moving countries and trying to look like I’m managing, I didn’t allow myself to grief about it. Yes, if you feel sad about anything, even not being able to breastfeed which to some isn’t important at all, and it’s fine too, you have to allow yourself to fully experience the emotions that come with it, whether it’s sadness, disappointed, feeling like a failure, anger and frustration.

This morning me and Isabella headed to the @cwscreatives and @babyloveduk meet up at @tinyteacups_playcafe  As always it was a fantastic meet up and I absolutely loved that I could take Isabella with me and she made some new friends too!  It was lovely to catch up with some amazing women who run their own businesses including @alpandash @mrserawlinson @robyn_swain @darlingprintsuk and finally meet @connecthypnobirthing and @ivyandprimrose (thank you for my lovely bouquet @ivyandprimrose ❤️) It’s just so lovely to be surrounded by women who get what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, why it’s important and support me in it too! #cwscreatives  #zine  #pnd #postnatal #postnataldepression #maternalmentalhealth #maternalmentalhealthawareness #maternalhealth #paternalmentalhealth #wellbeing #mummy #daddy #newparents #smallwins #business #smallbusiness #ourstory #milestonecards #mamamerch  #mentalhealth #mummagazine #magazine #selfcare
It only feels like yesterday! This was a picture of the first time myself and my teeny Ava ventured out. We were in hospital for 5 days after her birth and home 2 days when I decided to take her out. I went to Tesco for a few things & took her for a nice walk around the area we live stopping by the little pond nearby where I snapped this picture. I remember being so afraid that if I didn't take her out as soon as possible I'd get stuck in that cycle of avoiding it that I know so well. Long before Ava came along it started... I've never been particularly confident & I've suffered with mental health problems for many years. Anxiety, depression and later on I was diagnosed with P.T.S.D. Even during my pregnancy and and after Ava's birth I was so aware I was waiting for that decline in my mental health. I waited and I waited and every time I felt a little down I wondered is this it? Is it starting? I was terrified of that day 3 post baby eruption of hormones and tears but it didn't come. That doesn't mean that it's been easy or that I haven't had bouts of the dreaded D word because I have but I'm managing it. I talk about it freely I let family/friends  know that Im down and ask for support. It's nothing to be ashamed of and I hope people reading this know You are not alone, You are not weak & you can with help & support overcome it. At one time I would avoid leaving the house at all costs that's why that first outing with Ava was so very important to me. We've come along way we are a team & She has helped me so much. Never be afraid to speak to your doctor or reach out ❤  #thursday #throwbackthursday #mentalhealth #reachout #depression #anxiety #ptsd #youarenotalone #newmum #postnataldepression #lookafteryou

HAPPY #thusday PEEPS Today was the day my #twinnies went to their big school for the first time They were so excited a few tears were shed but what a great day they had. They were a few weeks old in the first pic and how tiny and fragile they were. A month early with no major problems and now look at them. PND didn’t allow me to enjoy their first year but now I’m making up for it. Never suffer in silence #postnataldepression is hard but it turned around for me with #exercise and #support xx having children is hard so do not ever feel a failure I did for a long time but now I know my girls are growing up nicely and I know I’m doing a good job 😘 #mentalhealth #fitness #postnatalfitness #postnatalexercise #twins #twinsisters #twinmum #twinmumlife #twinmummy #personaltrainer #gymlife #mummy #twins #twin #twinpregnancy #mentalhealthawareness

Ok. Here goes. Scary honest post. For all those wondering where I have been... •• I have had this post sitting in my drafts for a while now, debating whether I lay myself bare for all to see, to criticise, to judge but no one can judge me any harsher than I do already. •• Does anyone else struggle post natally? I mean struggle to the point of feeling like you are drowning inside yourself? Because I am drowning and I don't know how to save myself. •• I suffer from post partum psychosis it's all consuming some days, days where I only exist inside the thoughts racing in my mind, others not so much. I fall into this gap with mental health care, my gp needs me to see someone expertly trained in how to deal with people "like me". I have been referred to the local acute mental health team a number of times during this pregnancy and since giving birth. They only deal in the moment, while people are in crisis mode, giving them a couple of weeks care until they are able to free them except they don't know where to free me. The peri natal team won't take me because, although it's linked to having babies, they deal with women who reject their babes or have feelings towards their babes other than love. Thankfully this isn't me. But where does that leave me? Where do I go? •• I'm just hanging, suspended, waiting to fall and fear no one is really there to catch me. This grey area that I fall into is very lonely. •• I'm not writing this for sympathy. I'm not good at receiving it and this post will come as a shock to many who know me because I'm not a talker. I am writing this to bring awareness to issues concerning mental health, post and pre natally specifically. It's time that someone recognised there are women out there who struggle to the point of feeling worthless but fall through the cracks, sometimes even when they stick their head out above the parapet and scream for help. I have been screaming for some time now. Surely someday someone will hear me
We are all only human! We make mistakes ... and sometimes we knock our children’s head when we put them in the car seat.

REMINDER: You are under no obligation to look pretty. It doesn't matter if you're at home vegging out, at the grocery store buying food, at the gym working out, in a classroom, at the doctor or even at a salon. You do not have to look pretty just to exist in this world.  Today I almost cancelled my long-awaited appointment with a psychiatrist to get help for postnatal depression simply because I didn't feel like I could leave the house looking as bad as I did. I haven't slept in days, my hair is unbrushed, and I'm in need of a shower. But I went anyway. Because I deserve help even if I look like a hobo.  No makeup or hair dye or cute outfit can change who I am as a person. I am deserving of the space I take up, and so are we all.  #selfcare #selflove #unpretty #postnataldepression #postpartumdepression #ppd #pnd #depression #anxiety

Hello Thursday and Hello Happy Face! Not only did Mr T enjoy his swimming this afternoon - this is one of the things that my assessment picked up on and fabricated into a different reality BTW - I also got a lovely little surprise from @mama.massive too! ♥️ I’d ordered some stickers to help brighten up my 2019 diary which arrived this morning and not only is there a hand written ‘Thank you’ note inside but she’s also added a little ‘MAMA’ Wish Bracelet as well! Perfectly timed to make me smile! Happy Mail and Happy Mama today but I still HATE swimming lessons! 💌 • • • • #thismamadontpreach #bbloggers #instablog #beautyblog #ukbloggers #30plusblogs #mummyblogger #beautyblogger #thelittlethings #mystory #instababy #mylife #instablogger #baby #depression #fbloggers #mamadontpreach #babies #mumlife #mama #babiesofinstagram #motherhood #postnataldepression #randomactsofkindness #happymail #mentalhealth #mamamassive  #mentalhealthmatters #stopthestigma #supportsmall 💋
