Episode #38 – Looking Back on Postpartum Depression and Rage (Anonymom series)

October 26, 2020

< back to blog home

Welcome to my Anonymom series.  Real moms talking about their deepest and darkest moments – anonymously.  Anonymom episodes may consist of difficult topics including miscarriage, infertility, separation, anxiety, depression, trauma, and other potentially triggering issues.  Names have been changed to protect the identity of the mom.

This episode features Amanda, who says she never really wanted to be a mom, then as she got older and decided to try to get pregnant, struggled with infertility.  She talks about…

– her postpartum depression and how she felt trapped in her new life

– how her depression manifested as rage at times, especially when sleep deprived

– dealing with a colicky baby, having no family or social support, and finally getting help 

– how she deals with the regret and shame of lost time with her daughter, and also how she feels stronger than ever because of these experiences
