I would just like to celebrate something small that I realized recently. Amarys turned one, which means that I am officially past the 12 month postpartum mark, without any postpartum depression or anxiety. Woot! Wow, that was cool. And in retrospect I had depression during my pregnancy with Ayden, anxiety afterwards, anxiety after adopting Matthew, and anxiety and postpartum OCD after Riley. And with treatment and prevention strategies, after Amarys was born, I avoided it ALL.
