As part of The Mommies Network, LakeNormanMommies is a free community for moms in Lake Norman Area, North Carolina. We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? LakeNormanMommies offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Each month, we offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families. Our members also have access to our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed.
As a new mom approximately 21 years ago I can remember feeling so all alone and sad, I was was embarrassed to tell anyone my feelings or that I sat and cried all day and night. I was sure that something was just wrong with me and that I was a terrible mom for feeling so bad. Little did I know that I was suffering from the baby blues and then later postpartum depression that lasted for months. I suffered all alone when I really did not have to. My ex-husband was not supportive at all, he just thought my hormones were off and I was crying "just because".
