I have been struggling with pre-natal depression for almost 3 weeks now. I can’t seem to stop crying and I get irritated over the littlest things. I doesn’t help that I haven’t had a good night’s rest since New Year came. It is no wonder by I am quite neurotic lately.
Anyway, Dindin has seen my crying and many times had tried to comfort me, like hugging me and telling me to stop crying. One day, she asked me why I was crying and I blurted, “Nobody loves me.” She said, “Don’t cry Mama. Somebody love you.” I asked her who and she replied with a hand on her heart, “Me.” Awwww…I cried some more.
Today, I gave her a bath after my crying spiel. She told me, “Mom, why don’t you ask Papa to tell you something that will make you happy?” I just nodded.
Then she acted out like a monkey and I laughed, telling her how silly she was. To which she replied, “Of course, I have a lot of silly ideas!”
