lauren is the real deal & this is a SAFE place to ask other mommas questions.
talk to your hubby.
and call your ob/gyn.
you need to lay it out there.
they can't help you if you don't let them know where you are at.
i know that is hard.
oh, do i know.
and if your ob/gyn doesn't help - call your primary care dr.
if they don't help - keep trying.
call someone else.
or as i had to have my hubby do the other day for me- get someone else to make a call for you.
**have to stop here and make this clear-
if you are thinking of harming yourself in any way - even if you have not, even if you think you never will. YOU NEED TO GET HELP RIGHT AWAY. call your doctor or 800.273.8255 is the US National Suicide Prevention Line.**
ask safe, trusted friends if they had it.
ask those friends if they know someone who had it.
and contact that person.
a million times if you need to.
you are not a bother.
you are not alone.
there is help out there.
there are people who care.
you are worth the fight, dear.
you family needs you.
start your journey...
