Why do I feel like this?
I''m finding it hard to understand why I feel so low all the time after having the most gorgeous little boy 10 weeks ago. I cry at times when most of the time I have no idea where it comes from which generally then makes me more upset. I''m craving constant affection from my partner which is putting a strain on our relationship (it''s like I''m craving reassurance that I''m not only a good enough mother but a good partner to him) it''s causing me so much thought I question my abilities as a mother even though everyone says I''m doing an amazing job. I can''t help but feel useless all the time. Then some days I''m so incredibly happy but I''m starting to feel and question will I ever get control of my emotions again??
