Emily: I'm sorry you had to witness another one of my breakdowns. Zoey: Please don't be sorry. You've been trying to handle this alone for too long. So can we please talk about what's going on? Emily: I've been going through these bouts of anxiety and depression for a while now. I thought it was baby blues which passes after a few weeks. When it didn't, I figured when Miles starts sleeping through the night or when I went back to work I'd feel better. But it just got worse. I can't sleep when Miles is asleep. I can't focus when I'm not home with him, but then when I am home with him I just want to cry or run away cause I can't help but think he'd be better off without me. Zoey: I'm so sorry to hear that but, no, you're a great mom and Miles is lucky to have you. Emily: I know that logically, but I don't feel that. You know, when you have a baby, it's like your body becomes this machine and when it short circuits, just... Zoey: Have you talked about this with your doctor? What about David? Emily: You guys just lost your dad. David's still mourning and I feel weird or selfish talking about my own stuff right now. He's got enough to worry about. Zoey: He's your husband and he loves you. And you have the right to feel the way you're feeling, too. Emily: I've just been able conquer anything I put my mind to, you know? I should be able to get over this. Zoey: I so understand feeling that way. But here's the thing. Maybe some problems are too big for us to handle on our own. 1 4 Link to comment
