On sleep

I told my midwife that come evening-time, I feel like sitting and crying from tiredness. Sometimes I do. She cautioned me to look out for some things in regards to post-natal depression, and gave some advice.

But I am wondering: if she were getting between 5 and 6 hours of (broken) sleep every night for three weeks straight, wouldn't she feel like sitting down and crying come evening-time, too?

Just sayin'.


  1. Actually that is exactly why it is so hard to diagnose PND and to separate it from the usual tiredness of a person who doesn't get enough sleep. But hang in there, I can't really say it'll get better (yet) since I'm struggling with a 6 and 3 year old... but at some point you'll at least get a good nights sleep :)
