Post Adoption Depression Thought for the Day 3
Post Adoption Depression: Thought For The Day:
"Everything is piling up. I’m behind. I NEED to do the laundry, clean the house, pick up the dog poo, pay the bills, make the phone calls, pick up the meds, do the shopping, water the plants, do the yard work, cook dinner, make lunch for tomorrow, shower…. And, and, and….
And Charlie is hanging on my leg, so needy, and I can’t do any of the things I HAVE TO DO and I’m drowning. SHE is preventing me from accomplishing ANYTHING."
Post Adoption Depression Recovery Thought For the Day:
"None of that stuff won’t wait until tomorrow. Charlie loves and needs me, and I love and need her. SHE is my main "accomplishment" or "job" right now and compared to the other stuff she is way more important."
