Today, we were prompted on http://www.oneminutewriter.com to write on, "Metamorphosis"...I thought I would response with this piece of writing and share it with everyone on my blog!
"With the arrival of my 4th child, I felt the world was going to crash on me, I thought someone from outer space was going to snatch away my newborn. I smiled less and cried more, everything was spinning around right in front of me. Mentally I became a different person. And physically too, my facial appearances started changing with more frowns, sulks, and droopy eyes. Everyone acknowledged the change in me; I was not the same person. I told my Husband that the world was coming to an end. Perplexed and concerned, he took me to the doctor, who said I was suffering from post partum depression. He put me on medication for a few months and told me that I would be just fine afterward. Gradually with some therapeutic assistance and the love and support from family and friends, the hallucinations came to a complete standstill. My son is five years now and I’m glad I‘ve got over those childish fears and have grown into a more matured adult after that brief 'metamorphic' experience."
