Some days i'm ok and some days i'm not. I have uncontrollably mood swings that tears my nerves up. I try not to get so mad, sad, and frustrated all the time but it just seems to always happen. I mean i'm only 18 and it seems like everything is happening so fast. Me and my boyfriend we are fine right now but we still have our ups and downs. Sometimes i think he really doesn't understand what i'm goin through at times. But then again what man does? I just need some me- time to try to figure out somethings. But right now my main focus is my family and my baby boy. For any advice please feel free to comment or leave a message in the inbox. Thanks

Much Love

:)  At 18 life is crazy.  I was so bad that no one wanted to be around me.  They originally thought I had bi-polar disorder (I don't)... it's just life.  You're really just entering "adult" world and it's stressful.  I know people at 26 and even 30 who are just "entering the adult world".  It's hard on you and your SO.  Remember, it's not about living FOR your baby, or your family.  It's living bECAUSE of them.  Remember you have a lot of life before you and although it seems like the stress will never end- it will.  Now you have to find a balance between yourself and your life.  Don't ignore your needs for your families needs all the time, you don't want to lose who you are.  I've been there.  I've done that.  Thankfully I have learned from it.  I was probably better off financially at 18, than I am now... but I have never been happier.  :D  All will work out.  If you need advice from someone who has been through it and remembers it OH TOO CLEARLY, let me know.  I also struggled with postpartum depression after my first :*(
