Postpartum depression

image

This is me , a 26 year old who’s been on the workforce since the age of 15 till I got pregnant form my second baby  I decided to go back to school as a Emt and RT and due to financial reasons the best option was to stay home due to the high cost of childcare in California. Going back to school is the best decision that I’ve made for myself and children.  This 2017 year is full of opportunity in education and experience first hand your child’s development. What I didn’t count on was how depressed I had become the 2 month I had my baby. All I wanted to do was go back to work since that is what I’ve been used to. The depression got so bad that I would cry myself to sleep at time I felt useless even though there was so much to do. I didn’t mention it to my own mother because I was embarrassed since in some Latino families there is no such thing as postpartum depression you suck it up and move forward. I haven’t felt so weak I didn’t want to get up and even feed myself the lack of energy would take over my body. I didn’t have suicidal thoughts or harming my own children type of stuff but I felt sad for no reason. I would cry everytime I had to pump (mind you this didn’t happen with my first child ) I was either crying  or just laying in bed and it was draining to do anything and yes it sounds super lazy but in those months my body was still healing and multitasking with two children was exhausting . I knew I had to deal with it but didn’t know how at that time I was afraid of what was to come knowing I wouldn’t be going back to my old routine working in the healthcare field. I would gain more knowledge and also spend time with my children. I honestly didn’t seek any help and that was a mistake so I encourage everyone who’s experiencing any symptoms to speak to someone who you feel comfortable with and there are many support groups that provide guidance. How I go out of it was by telling myself that I’m not going to let this take over me ..that I will rise throughout any situation because there is a solution . I made a routine where I worked out , school also helped me a lot by keeping me busy and eating healthy change my mood  . I also had a routine for my children that kept us busy. The first few months where emotionally draining but as I got adjusted I felt much better. Now it’s 8 month after and it’s my last semester of school knowing that I receive my EMT certificate and work by the end of this year will be great . Knowing I will continue with my education and routine . Knowing that this sad feeling has left my body and turned to positive energy has really helped heal my body and soul. I am no longer a prisoner of postpartum depression. I am glad I knew what it was and learned how to recover before it took over me.

Library Reads for Children

image

Good Morning beautiful people , I woke up and wanted to share what I do with my boys before bedtime. What I do as a mother is to enforce reading it’s extremely crucial a child gets read to. Their brains are developing and having them read or you read to them stimulate their brain development and provides them with many advantages for example they are  able to focus more and learn new vocabulary. What I do is read to them before they go to bed I make sure they are properly fed, bathe, and rub them with lavender baby lotion therefore they are more relaxed. I get books that are for their age group and sometimes I bump one book an age higher just for them to get adjusted. I get the books at my local library and usually take my boys they pick out the books with me and we talk about what they might be about and which book we are going to read first that night. Usually your local library provides FREE library cards if you reside in that city . Libraries also provide FREE tutoring and FREE activities for children so please take advantage of the program. Each library has a Calendar with activities such as bilingual reading, tutoring, learning to do magic tricks, playtime and reading time. Also some libraries close late and are open during the weekend , my library closes at 7pm and opened on SAT. I understand we have working parents. I hope this is helpful for you and find the time to take your little ones.

1ST: usted tiene que comer comidas saludables por ejemplo lo que funciona para mí ser una madre ocupada es preparación de comida.
Me preparo la comida antes para que si yo estoy apurada no me valla a comer algo que no es sano. No tienes que mantenerlo aburrido.
Disfruto de muchas comidas sabrosas sin ser aburido. No como menos, como cuando tengo hambre, pero me aseguro de que sea algo

Surviving college as a mom:)

Being a parent and attending college can be challenging but not impossible. I am a mother who is also a student at Orange Coast Community College here in Costa Mesa CA. I am majoring in Radiologic Technologist. I have many goals in life and one of them is to graduate with honors. As I just started my semester I wanted to provide a few pointers on what has been helping me throughout my journey.

  1. I take night classes since I know in a few months I’ll be heading back to work.
  2. I am also part time so I don’t stress our too much .
  3. I make sure throughout my day I have a healthy meal to keep me energized and drink plenty of fluids.
  4. I maintain organized and make sure I have a routine.
  5. Time management is a must.
  6.  Start small….ONLY do what you can handle, so you’re not dropping classes because you got too much going on.
  7. Study while you can. I know having kids the house is always noisy so. I try to study between my kids nap times and at night. TIP!! I sometimes take them to the library where my toddler sits down and looks at books and tries to read them. TIP!! You can also study at the library at school which some of them have tutors that can help with your homework 🙂
  8. Colleges/Universities offer childcare based on your income, if you’re a parent who is struggling financially chances are you might even get FREE childcare on campus.
  9. Communicate with your counselor and make sure he or she understands your goals and provides the advice you need to be successful in school. 
  10. DON’T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF because you’re not the only parent on campus 🙂

POSHMARK APP Fashion Sell/Buy (Invite Code GCSFJ)Posh2wear

Good Morning I wanted to share a side gig I currently have that’s called PostMark. PoshMark is an app where you can sell and buy fashion items from your own closet. It’s pretty simple, you share /post your items customers view them and purchase them. So displaying your item is big because it attracts buyers. Whether you’re wearing the item or snapping pictures of many creative ideas you can wear the clothes. This give the buyer an image of how the item can be worn. Once you make your first sell you wrap your items and place item in a priority mail box (which are free at the post office ) then Posh Mark sends you a shipping label…you print the label and take item to post office. You will receive your first payment once the customer receives their item. I wanted to mention that PoshMark does keep a percentage of what you make!! I enjoy this app because it gives me the freedom to make extra cash wherever I go. My closet consist of women’s /men’s /kids clothing and accessories/shoes/and a vintage camera 🙂 . I am also a fast shipper, negotiable, and provide bundle discounts. There’s always an item going on sale in my closet… here is a peek at my closet .. Also in my home page I have the widget where you can access the app and shop my closet  🙂 #enjoy #let go of the clutter in your closet #money #happy seller/buyer #give your clothes a new owner #put in love to your display and wrapping :)#open a boutique # make your first sale 

Chapt. 1 The Wait (God,Relationships,Self worth,waiting for Sex)

From my previous post regarding readers goals 2017, I wanted to update you all on the book I started reading THE WAIT. Unfortunately this book only has 9 chapters so I will take a chapter review at a time. Also if you like the review and you’re interested in purchasing the book  I will post the link below. Today was a hectic day for me so as I was waiting for my class to start I sat in my car reading the 1st chapter and let me tell you I am hooked, that I had to keep checking my phone so I don’t miss my night class Lol. So let’s get to the review!!!  Chapter 1 title is called NO SEX? You Can’t Be Serious. This chapter is very intense because chapt. 1 is a self evaluation about your sex/relationship life. This chapt. provides you a insight of how to have the faith and ways you can be celibate with your partner . That there is more to a relationship than just feeling instant gratification. Once we give ourselves the love and care we need, we are able to flourish in our sex/ relationship life. We learn patience and how being selective of our choices makes us more desirable.

2017 Readers Goal 

I’m not your loyal bookworm, but I’m trying to get my read on this year. My goal is to finish these 4 books by the end of the year. Every 5th chapter I will write a brief summary of what I learned. In hopes to get you all reading as well. It’s always refreshing to escape in a good book next to a cup of tea (Earl Grey Latte ) and warm blankets :). Let me know any best sellers or your favorites?
