Re: Feeling unfit
Hi. I know someone who is bipolar and she is a really good mom. Yes it is hard but she loves her little girl so much that she manages to get through the hard days. I know this must be very scary for you but you will get through it. Just look at how far you have come and what you have been through already. You are still here. There is a reason why you have been given this gift.... A baby. I have pms or possibly pmdd. I got it after an unsuccessful IVF cycle. My husband and I have tried for a baby for a while. Be strong. Once u have the baby u will be able to get on better meds as well. Do you have any support in your family? Parents, sisters ? It helps to have family around during times like this. I completely know how terrified you must be. Before my Ivf cycle I felt very ready to be a mom. After the fact I questioned everything. I was scared because I did not understand what was happening to me and how hormones could affect my mental state and physical sensations. I wonder now too if I would be a good mom or not. But I really do believe that you are meant to have this baby and give motherhood a try. In the end if you do find that it is just too difficult then you could alway let a loving couple adopt your baby. That is an option. For now try to be strong and seek support anywhere you can. I wish you all the best.
