I just gave birth to my first child October 26th at 28 weeks via c-section due to severe preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome. My life has changed in the past 2 weeks and it's been physically and emotionally exhausting.
I feel so many emotions. I feel like I was robbed of my pregnancy and delivery. I'm traumatized from having preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome and everything that happened in the hospital, I could have died it was so bad. My blood pressure is still not in check and it scares me. We are running out of money, and when my husband does go back to work he will be going out of state like he normally would every week, so I'll be alone. I don't work anymore, I can't drive for another week. I can't clean or lift anything right now. I can't eat, but I'm not sure if it's from my medicine or depression. We revolve around going to the hospital 2 or 3 times a day...we don't live far but it's like all I do is pump, drive to see the baby, go home, repeat. I feel like there is NO normalcy in my life anymore and I just want to break down and cry.
That is all just the tip of the ice burg.... does anyone have any advice to help get me through this rough time?
