I am just wondering if there is a post hysterectomy depression, kind of like post partum depression. I have been in such a funk lately. It seems like all I do is cry and usually over the stupidest things. I have been trying to get out of the house more and stay busy thinking that will help get me out of this funk. But, that isn't even working. I am still having a very hard time knowing that I cannot have anymore children. It makes me feel like such a failure, especially being LDS. Don't get me wrong, I know how lucky I am to have 2 healthy, beautiful children, but it is still very hard. I see baby clothes and just get so sad that I can't buy them anymore. We have 5 people in our family right now who are pregnant and although I am so very happy for all of them, it definitely makes me sad. So, if anyone has any thoughts as to how I can deal with all this, please let me know. I just ask that you be gentle.
