This is what a woman did recently by posting a picture of herself resting with her 8-weeks-old baby while she was down with the flu.
But surprisingly, this trend of posting pictures helped this mother from gitting rid of a serious problem. Yes, you heard it right!
Feeling confused? Then read the full story here,
“Sick as a flea bitten dog in the backstreets of Bali. Except I’m not in Bali. I’m in bed with a temp of 39, sore throat, body aches and a 8 weeks old. I salute you all moms/dads with a chronic and serious illness who get up every day and push through the pain and take care of your kids. This is hard.”
“I got it about 7 times while BF, so I used to ask the Dr. for the prescription and have the antibiotics on hand ready to take and the first sign of infection, to lessen the severity.”
The woman is Zoe Hendrix, a former reality TV star who starred on ‘Married at First Sight.’ Thank god for the comment on her post that Zoe discovered about the disease pretty early and got diagnosed for it.
She soon visited a doctor and updated her followers on the status with this photo of herself and the baby saying-
“THANK YOU ?? to all you wonderful and switched on followers who informed me about Mastitis in my last post (which I thought was just the flu) I have been on antibiotics, pain relief, and my angel of a mother in law has been helping me care for Harper. I am starting to feel human again after feeling like I was hit by a truck! #thankyouinstafam.”
Well, this incident proves yet again that being active on social media sometimes can be very beneficial sharing some important and useful stuff with one another.
NOTE: Mastitis is a disease that can happen to any new mom, particularly with 6 to 12 weeks of giving birth.
Share this valuable information, if you know anyone who is pregnant or someone who has given birth recently to help them identify the symptoms early.
