    Hi Leashy!

    Sorry that you are going through this. After I had my kids, I found myself really tired with LOTS of brain fog. I think it takes a long time for our hormones to settle back to normal. Also, you may consider talking with your doctor about postpartum depression. It is more likely to occur the more children you have. I experienced antenatal depression while I was pregnant but I know quite a few moms that experienced it after.

    Also, make sure you get some type of support around you. You will need support from family and GOOD/Trustworthy friends. Being a single mom is hard. I am married and it it still hard so I can only imagine how hard it is being a single mom to multiple children.

    Stay in close contact with your doctor and if you are feel you are slipping further into depression or anxiety or having problems with your medication, LET SOMEONE KNOW! If you need medication to help you, please take it. Don't try to struggle alone. Also, try to exercise (have the kids do it with you), get fresh air, eat healthy (with the right amount of protein) and try to get as much sleep as possible (yeah right 😏, but try anyway). If you take of yourself, you will be more equipped to take of your kids.

    Being a parent is a hard job, but you can do it. When I feel overwhelmed, I watch videos or vlogs of moms with more kids (some have 8+ kids) to get tips on how they manage and run their households. The videos help me a lot. I hope my post helps you at least a little bit. Please post again if you need support. There are some great people on this forum. Take care of yourself and those little babies! 🙂
