Have you ever completely lost your identity?

Lately, I’ve felt lost in who I am. I know I’m a mom, but other than that I’m drifting through life. I am so incredibly thankful for our twins, but the sudden rush of emotions postpartum, the OCD, anxiety and depression have been a battle the last 20 months. No one tells you about the 4th trimester or how things can change in an instant. Throughout my pregnancy I was so excited to be a mother. I couldn’t wait! Then after birth I felt so disconnected and out of touch. I didn’t understand why I didn’t immediately connect to our babies... at least, not in the way you they do in the movies. I went from working 70 hours a week, managing multiple departments in the hospitality industry to a stay at home mom. It was a HUGE adjustment for me. I’ve always been a worker... a little busy bee. I tried going back to work, but my postpartum OCD and depression was crippling. I would wake up at night mid panic attack. It was something I was completely unequipped to deal with. Now almost 2 years later I am ready to get my identity back. To really find myself again. I’m more than a mother, wife and friend. I’m evolving and it feels good to finally start taking control of my life again. ❤️ .
