I took the depo shot 1month ago and I been having crazy anxiety like its so weird it comes and goes . I am so scared to do anything and I can't take it this was my first time taking any BC since I had my baby 4 months ago sometimes I'm so scared to even hold her . And I hate being alone . Anyway it all stared a week after I took the stupid shot . My OB told me since it was my first time ever the shot will most likely get out of my system fast and I just have to wait it out . Please anyone else having this ? Any recommendations ?
You need to have a discussion of your worries with someone you trust. Who will that be? Please don't pick someone from Planned Parenthood because they aren't looking out for your best interests at all. Who do you think you can trust? Somebody who knows their way around problems like yours. Someone you respect. At church? School? Family?
You sound very lost right now. How old are you? I can talk to you until you find that right person. You only need to have the depo shot work if you're having sex. Can you steer away from sex for awhile until you know you're covered by your birth control? You aren't ready for another baby. You'll feel better if that problem is settled.
Now, do you love your baby? A baby needs love very much. He or she needs to be held and loved and talked to. Babies don't do well if they aren't held and loved. Can you do that for your baby? Pick a safe place to hold her or him. Stuff pillows under your arm if you need to to make her safer. Ask someone how to hold her securely. Do you have anyone around to ask? Moms train Moms. You aren't supposed to know everything on your own. You learn from other Moms and from books and teaching films.
Why are you alone? How can you get the company you need? I'm willing to help you but I do need to know some things so I can give you advice or ideas. I'll be here waiting if you want to write back. If you want to write to me in a private message, check that option out and we can do that.
Remember, God loves you more than anyone ever can and I care, too. I'll be here.
