Quoting aimeeintx: I can say it's nice to see that there are others.....Now that I am feeling a bit better I had the courage ... [snip!] ... I don't think I am close to as bad as she was. But thats what scared me I could get worse than now cause it just snuck up on meI'm glad you feel better and that you are able to write about. I noticed that I started to feel better even before I talked to my doctor just by talking to my mom and hubby. I was fighting it alone for so long that once I finally confided in them, it took a big weight off my shoulders and I felt more comfortable and was able to talk about to others. Thats why I feel it is very important to talk to someone, even if it's someone you don't know physically, like someone on here or whatever. Fighting PPD alone is what causes this problem to progress and get worse. Again like I said before, if there are any ladies who are just reading this and not posting and you feel like you may need some help, talk to me...I will do my best to help you, because I've been there and I'm still working on it today. Even now, I still feel like I could revert and sometimes I do get into a mood where my daughter's or any one else's slightest noise, or question can make me explode. I do think there needs to be a permenant posting site on here for this because, like you I believe there are many on here who are just plain afraid to admit that they are having these feelings and problems.
Quoting Jess8168: I didn't really have PPD, but I did start having HORRIBLE anxiety after I had my daughter. My anxiety ... [snip!] ... I'm getting better at controlling it, and I'm hoping that I can go without the medication, but somedays its very unbearable.
Quoting SUGAPiEHUNNiEBuN:“ Anxiety IS a form of depression...or should I say a syptom. I hope that you get your medicad back because ... [snip!] ... if you need the meds, you need them. But Iam real glad to hear that your are trying to control it on your own. Good luck!”
Quoting Jess8168: Thank you! I'm trying, and it does get hard. But the Zoloft made me act worse. And I didn't like feeling the way I did.You know what, I am having problems with Zoloft too, but haven't been able to change meds yet. I think I am allergic to it because from the moment I started on it I would get severe migraines. But your welcome
Quoting aimeeintx: I take lexapro if I didn't mention it. My dr said that it's the middle ground between Paxil and Zoloft. ... [snip!] ... and Zoloft. Since I already have taken it in the past we decided that it was better to not fix what wasn't broken so to speakYea, I am currently trying to switch to lexapro since I am having problems with zoloft. Do you have any issues with is?
Quoting my lipgloss b poppin': is there anything you do besides take meds? if you take these meds can you still bf?I'm not sure. I would talk to your doctor, but I am sure that you can try and work it out without the meds.
