DEPRESSION PART 6:

MARION TELLS HER STORY OF MARRIAGE AND PAIN SHE WENT THROUGH,HEALING AND NOW SECOND MARRIAGE:

MARRIAGE:
I got married in 2013 and in 2014 Dec I GAVE BIRTH TO MY BOUNCING BABY.
It was so overwhelming being my 
FIRST BABY I had never interacted with a baby being a 
LAST BORN and I therefore had NO CLUE bringing up a baby.
Baby would cry whole night, I CRIED TOO.
WENT INTO DEPRESSION.

MOTHER IN-LAW:
With my mother in law around, SHE TURNED AGAINST ME and started saying that I WAS PRETENDING AND I DIDN’T WANT THE BABY.

GANGED AGAINST ME:
HER AND MY HUBBY would not even TOUCH THE BABY especially and MY BABY WOULD CRY WHOLE NIGHT, I had no strength to handle him all night and I went into DEPRESSION DUE TO LACK OF SLEEP.

NO HELP:
They dint want to help me with the baby at all only did house chores and my baby was the kind who would not sleep at all at night.

HALLUCINATIONS:
I started HALLUCINATIONS and seeing SMALL GRAVES and COFFINS whenever I tried to sleep.
I’d see MY BABY DYING which deprived my sleep, even when the baby slept, all I did was stay awake watching him and if I tried sleeping, coffins and small graves ran in my mind.

RUNNING AWAY:
After many days of talking to my hubby and no response. More stress from His mom,how i hate our Kid.
I ran away from the house with my baby AT NIGHT with the help of a friend, went to MY BIOLOGICAL MOTHER and explained to her, my son was then 10 days.

MOM TOOK ME TO HOSPITAL:
I was taken to Dr X{Name withheld}, GYNAECOLOGIST at THIKA who said it was POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION, he then referred us to Dr Y{Name withheld} a PSYCHIATRIST in THIKA who ADMITTED ME at HOSPITAL Z{Name withheld} and kept me under drugs.

SUICIDAL THOUGHTS:
All this time i was contemplating suicide me and my baby.
She said if I dint seek medical attention as fast as I did, I’d either kill myself or my baby.
My hubby did not listen and we therefore broke up, sighting that I disrespected him and his mother.

THANKING LORD:
I thank God I’m alive today, postpartum depression is real, never blame a new mother who harms herself or her baby, she could be going through depression.

LOSING CONCENTRATION:
There was a possibility of even losing my mind and getting mad.
Seems my husband was aware there was something known as postpartum depression which I had never heard about. 
He’d keep telling me… Wee ukuguruka wanjie kurogota maratathi {one day you’ll be mad}…

That was before I ran away. 2015/16 are my worst years.

SINGLE PARENT I’M:
I’m now a single parent, but I thank God.
He has surely been faithful and provided.

DIVORCE:
I’m now waiting for three years to file a DIVORCE.

FORGOTTEN:
The paternal family forgot about us including my hubby.

SECOND MARRIAGE:
I’m now looking for a way to divorce him and get myself ANOTHER HUSBAND 😀😀😀

RECOVERY AN OVERCOMING:
The DOCTOR gave me a COUNSELOR who helped ME a lot!

MOM AND PURE IN HEART FRIENDS:
MY MOM AND FEW FRIENDS MADE ME OVERCOME!
I had a reached a place I REJECTED my SON.AND MYSELF they stood with me to full recovery!

PARTING SHOT AND ADVICE:
Anew MOTHER needs a lot of ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT,SHE’S DELICATE THE NEW BORN!

ALWAYS SPEAK OUT, DON’T DIE LONELY!
