You lived through trauma, and there are certain times when you’re numb from the memories and feel like you’re detached from your body and the world around you. Sometimes, you’re sad for days and have trouble sleeping. If these symptoms continue, you may be experiencing dissociation. But help is available.
You gave birth recently, you’re tired and irritable all the time, and you’re questioning if you’re even a good mom. Your family relationships have suffered, and your sleeping and eating habits have gotten worse. You may be experiencing the first signs of postpartum depression, which actually affects more than just moms.
