Word of the week:pills

PillsI am not a believer in Yin and Yang. But I do believe in balance.

This week has all been about re-establishing balance in our lives.

I went to see the GP and got pills for my PND. It is a bit scary as I haven’t been on them the first time I had it and I have this question at the back of my mind if I could cope without them. But the thing is that these past weeks I haven’t been coping very well and anything that could help should be given a chance.

Then, yesterday, I spent all day between GPs and hospital children wards trying to get reflux pills for Georgie. We did in the end. Which felt like a great victory after three weeks of hassle and unsuccessful attempts at getting treatment for him. Again, these are the pills that worked for his sister and I truly hope they will work for him too. We will not know for another two weeks, the doctor said, that’s about how long it takes for them to control the excess acid. But he has had a great day today and I am hopeful that things will improve sooner.

I am hopeful balance will be re-established in our lives soon. That baby will sleep reasonably and I will be able to rest physically and mentally and things will fall into place again. Not like before as this is a new era, as a family of 4, but into a new normality.

    I think it’s a very brave step to go to the doctor and get the pills. I’m sure that the positive things you’ve been doing will really help with getting the balance back.

    • Thank you, lovely, I don’t feel brave right now, just weak and tired but I know they are the step in the right direction.

  7. Oh huni I hope you start feeling better soon. Taylor had really bad acid reflux and it is exhausting as a parent to listen to your baby crying and feeling so helpless! If you ever need to off load you know where I am xx

    • Thank you, Kirsty. Sleep deprivation makes everything look so bad, doesn’t it? Hope it ends soon.xx

  8. You poor thing – sounds like a sensible decision to see your GP. And hope the reflux medication works – even if it takes a couple of weeks, at least you can see light at the end of the tunnel! Good luck x #blogclub

  9. Asking for help is such a big step, but one you must take to get yourself better. Wishing you all the best and sending my love #blogclub

  10. Well done you for going to get the help you need for both of you:) Hang on in their – hoping you all get some sleep soon (I remember too well what it is like) #blogclub

  11. I really hope you both start to feel better very soon. I had PND with my third baby and made use of the pills to help clear the fog. They do help.. Sending you hugs. xxx
