I am a cheerful soul. Most of the time, I have dealt with situations as and when they occur. I have tried things at school, college and at work - sometimes I have succeeded and at other times I have failed. But I have quickly moved on. I guess we all do!
The new phase of pregnancy brought about changes beyond my comprehension. I felt like a different person.
Laziness crept in. I started getting irritated at small things not done as per my wishes. Any comments were unwelcome. I despised food and everything around me. Sometimes I felt very sad.
The brunt of my severe mood swings was borne by my H. Some thoughts just lingered on in my mind. It affected me negatively. Hormones were wreaking havoc.
During that time, I started watching YouTube videos on ways to deal with such hopeless feelings. I also attended a conference on 'How to handle depression during and post pregnancy'. The prime message was to ignore things beyond one's control. The doctor suggested ways to be happy and to not dwell on a single thought for more than a moment.
I became more observant of my actions and took time before reacting to trivial things. Normalcy returned.
Did you or your spouse go through such a phase? Do share your experience!
