Life Is Not a Psychiatric Disorder
Giving birth should be happy, but you don’t feel that way. Postpartum depression is what people say. You’re prescribed antidepressants called SSRI that keeps you even and won’t let you cry.
After giving birth you may feel sad and alone. But it’s not psychiatric, just messed up hormones. When kids wiggle in school and just can’t sit still, They’re given a psych label and most often, a pill. It’s much more than that or can’t you see?
Their diets are terrible, they’re not ADHD. We could fix the problem. Instead of a drug, Try changing their diets, then, give them a hug. The stages of grief number five, they say.
And you can’t get through them in a quicker way. It starts with denial and we must walk, not run. Through all the others until acceptance comes. When someone dies we need to say goodbye. Not cover our grief with another SSRI.
Emotions are normal, sometimes we feel bad.
Some days we are happy, on others we’re sad.
But the ups and downs are better by far,
When put all together, they make up who we are.
From the time you are born, you have stress, pain, and strife,
But it’s not psychiatric, it’s just a condition called life.
