“The adjustment period is tumultuous.”
“It’s going to take some time.”
“It’s like being on a roller coaster.”
I had heard or read all of these things about the period of time when your body adjusts to medication for postpartum depression. Somehow I hoped that it wouldn’t apply to me. I was praying that since we’re spending the majority of my adjustment period staying with family for the holidays, that I wouldn’t need to experience it. I didn’t want my highs and lows to be on display. But I’m not the exception.
