A lot has happened for you in a very short time. In two years you have fallen in love, experienced love and passion, gone through a pregnancy, had a baby, and dealt with the reality that the perfection you knew is not there anymore. In addition, you now have to make a huge decision of uprooting your life and re settle in a new city. It is not surprise you feel overwhelmed, and that sense of anxiety and sadness is expected.
There are probably two approaches or goals that might need to be considered. On one hand the living arrangements and other practical needs to be met, especially since there is a baby involved and his/her wellbeing is paramount. Then there are the deeper issues about how your view of relationships and life in generally are going through a transition right now and this can cause a lot of stress as our world view is the essence of who we are.
I suggest for one to check with your local maternity health nurse for the practical aspects of the issues, and also her views on the second aspect of your issues. I am not sure which state you are. In Victoria there are Maternity Health Nurses new mothers meet regularly see during the first months after birth. Also check with yours and/or the baby’s doctor for ideas. Maybe you can show this blog to them to initiate some discussion about this issue.
Look after yourself and good luck!
