My son in 18 month old, and I still have trouble with depression. It was very bad for the first year, but things have improved greatly. However, I still find myself overwhelmed with grief sometimes. I'll be fine for weeks, and then suddenly I'm crying because I can't visit a certain store because I can't bring my son there.
I was not ready to have children. My husband and I married right after college, and we were going to wait five years to start a family because we had many things we wanted to do before we were tied down. I got pregnant on our honeymoon, even though I was on the pill. Now, when I find myself suddenly overcome with grief, all I think about is the life I was supposed to have before I had my son. I love him more than life itself, but I can't let go of the life I wanted. I feel so confined that I want to scream sometimes. I need help.
Thank you for reading my story.
