Dear Postpartum Depression,
You are the monster that slips in bit by bit into the mind.
Crushing the mind.
Crushing the way one thinks.
Crushing the way one sees others and life altogether.
You make your victim not perceive the Joy right in front of her.
You make one not enjoy the little things in the world.
You fog the mind, and you fog the rational thinking of your victim.
You slip through bit by bit.
No one saw you coming.
No one knows the cause or how you start off.
You are a dangerous Factor.
You are a risk factor in life.
You make your victims feel guilt and lots of shame.
You make your victims feel this anger.
You cause your victims to feel this, this rage within and that is not who they are.
You make your victims have negative thoughts.
You make them feel neglected.
No matter how physically and mentally strong your victims are,
You have a way of subduing them.
Why? Why? Why?
Oh, if only there is an early realization of your victims and too many it does not seem to affect.
You make one struggle to smile.
You make one struggle for happiness and joy.
Yet, you make it disappear to nowhere in particular.
The victim keeps asking for help inwardly.
“Help! Help!” says your victim in a very faint voice,
“Who is there?” “Can anyone help me?” But no one is there.
Because you have created a dark place for one to stay imprisoned.
If you suffer from Postpartum Depression,
Talk to a Professional when you feel you have the symptoms of postpartum depression.
Talk to someone.
Talk to your Partner.
Talk to your Spouse.
Talk to your friend.
Even the strongest at heart gets affected.
No one knows what you are thinking.
No one knows what you see in the dark.
Do not let it cloud your mind.
SPEAK UP TO SOMEONE.
Ask for help.
Let someone in
Find help to save yourself and your family.
We all have a part to play in this fight against Postpartum depression.
Lend a helping hand.
Remember, It all starts with the mind.
Until next time, Stay Calm.
