I knew it was happening as I sat in the waiting room for at my 6-week postpartum appointment. I couldn’t stop the tears from streaming down my face while I filled out the postpartum depression rating scale.

As I watch the rain pour down I cant help but to get a feeling of crap. I LOVE rain days. Like really love them. I have a dream of a perfect rain day and it goes like this:
I wake up feeling refreshed to the smell of coffee brewing and the sound of rain hitting the window. Shortly after my morning yawn-stretch I hear my husband talking.
