Mama’s Confessions — Stopping birth control, taking control of my health & postpartum depression

I made a ton of decisions that weren’t true to me, I gained 30 lbs, my home was in shambles, my relationship was a mess, and it was due to my postpartum depression that I needed to address. Once I recognized I had postpartum depression I was able to make the needed steps to commit to taking care of myself.

The first step: Start moving. Exercise. Just get off my butt! I hadn’t worked out in at least four years and after so long of being sedentary I will admit that I was scared to get started. I decided to go back to my tired and true workout, running. When I was younger, I would go for a run as the most basic and rewarding form of exercise.

The first few weeks were rough. I was in pain. I was sore. It was so hard to voluntarily decide to wake up each morning to go for a run. But I did it anyway. Over one month later, I don’t regret it at all.

I had to admit some hard truths to myself: I was not taking enough time to work on my physical health, I was hardly even going outside and I kept making excuses. I was using weed as a bandaid to avoid addressing the issue: I needed help. My postpartum depression was not going to cure itself. Finally, I was willing and ready to do the work so that I could find my way back to myself, again.
