Mommy's Little Breakdown

This morning I was what you might call the classic postpartum woman. 

Yeah, it was bad.

Yesterday, I went to the dermatologist to find out what my skin is doing. For several weeks its been red and itchy. No big deal right? I mean I just have hive-ish spots all over my face ::insert screaming mom::. It's a good thing I only go to work, the grocery store and home on weekdays. Anyway, I apparently have developed psoriasis since having Baby J. SERIOUSLY?! It's official, my body hates me. Hates me!

So, this morning?

I couldn't find clothes to wear that felt comfortable, my face was extra red from the medicine I've been given and J didn't sleep very well last night at all. This is basically a recipe for disaster, or at least a crazy momma. I cried and cried before Hubby B left for work. Then I pulled myself together, took J to daycare and went to work.

Oh foolish, foolish me. I only made it about ten minutes at work before breaking down in tears again. One of my sweet coworkers gave me a pep talk and told me to head home until after lunch. Luckily, she told the boss lady I wasn't feeling well. Even more luckily? I work in a very small office where this wasn't a big deal.

You know what I did? Came home laid in bed and caught up on my Kardashian craziness.

Sometimes I've got to remind myself...



  1. It's wonderful that your co-workers are very supportive! Visiting from Toddle Along Tuesday bloghop!

  2. Awwww I remember those days. I had an incident like this and my wonderful boss called me into her office and sent me home for the day. It's wonderful to work with other moms who've been there and done that.
