Postpartum Depression :: 산후 우울증 (살려주세요!)
Updated: Oct 4, 2021
<ME during (Long-Lasting) Postpartum Depression>
A total physical exhaustion
and mental depletion.
Yes, I was so deprived of energy every day (무기력증 ㅠㅠ)
and chips and sugary bread
(and of course, ICE CREAM!!)
were my best friend to feed my hungry soul.
Looking Back, I was always desperately looking for someone
and some moment to rescue me instantaneously.
But it felt like that 'moment' never came.
Just like life in general,
passively waiting for something to happen doesn't change anything.
We need to find our own 'Oxygen Mask' rather than waiting
for someone to kindly put the mask onto our face.
I know it's freakin' hard to even imagine if the 'mask' actually even exists.
But moms, please get your bum off from that couch and search for HELP.
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you."
Aside from the professional help, K-DOULA is open to hear your stories :)
