My mom wanted to give my husband and I a break from our kids. She took them to visit at her house which is 6 hours away.
I already had depression (for the padt month) but it got worse after the kids left! The first day they were gone I had what appeared to be hypomania for several hours. Then, I got home from work and the reality of them being gone sunk in. The house was dark, quiet and empty.
It’s been really hard to get out of bed. I had felt like it was pointless to get up. I have been doing better the past couple of days.
I started Wellbutrin 3 days ago and I think it is already starting to help. Getting out of bed wasn’t too bad this morning. My psychologist said that my depression will lift a bit when the kids get home, too.
Needless to say, the kids 2 week stay with my mom is being cut short. My husband and I both miss the kids so much!
Remember, it does get better!
