Tell the world what you’re made of

I am Chyenne Garnett. 28-year-old college student, studying sociology at Grand Canyon University.

I live outside of Atlanta Georgia, I have a part-time job as a store manager and I’m a mom to a two year old little girl.

I am creating this blog to discuss about the ins and outs that women do with on a daily basis. Such as health, mental health, postpartum depression after having a baby and how to deal with these types of things when you have no family around for that comfort and help.

The real deal

What postpartum depression does to me

I’ve been dealing with postpartum depression since day one of having my daughter. I knew immediately that some thing was it right. I I felt like I was drowning in nothing but sorrow. I felt like I had nowhere to go and no one to turn to. I would run away from my child cries and while doing that, I would just sit and cry. I was far away from family, which made me feel very alone.

I made an appointment to go to the doctor and she explained to me what I was going through. My lovely doctor ended up prescribing me a medication to help with my anxiety. I did not like the outcome of the medication so I stopped. I decided to go back to work early to see if being in a different environment would make everything better. once I started working again I felt that depression part start lifting. I got a little bit better over time, but I still to this day have days where I feel like the world is crashing down on me and it makes me feel like I don’t want to be around my child. I get to a point where  I will begin to force myself to be in her presence. Even though it hurts I’m fighting through it.

I tell myself every single day I feel like this, that it will get better. I also tell myself that I am not alone in this and that there are people out there just like me.
