Quoting Jennybananna:" The meds didn't help so I quit taking them. Some days are better thn others but its a struggle. I have ... [snip!] ... who constantly push me to stay positive and recognize my signs of going down so they can talk to me before it gets to bad."
Do you just have to stay 'aware' of yourself and try to snap out of it?
With me its PPD .. mainly being frustrated at the kids, not feeling maternal, wanting to get away.. i didn't want to be a Mum some days and wished i could get in the car and leave for a few hours.
Now im enjoying them, i only have the odd moment where i'll hand DH our baby and take a breather while he screams.. but over all im coping now, where as i wasnt before.
Im not against the meds at all.. but i just wonder if i'll ever be back to my old self without them.. KWIM?
