Depressed...has, or is anyone now going through this? Help.

So when my now 2 yr old son was born I had horrible PPD, and bad anxiety and had it up until he was about 8 months old then it just seemed to taper off. Well all of a sudden out of frickin no where I'm starting to feel sad again and get anxious about stupid things like hubby going to work and my son throwing tantrums, I feel like I want to hyperventilate a little... I don't but I feel like my skin is crawling and tingly. What's wrong with me?! I'm not anything like I was with my PPD but I don't want to feel this at all. And I really don't want to take meds! Nothing in my life has changed or gone bad so I don't understand. The only thing I do know is that we went on vacation for four days and I started feeling like this on our return. I feel like I got to such a great point in my life, was feeling good and loving life and had overcome so much after beating my PPD, and here I F-ing go again!

  • Sounds like you need to see a therapist. They don't prescribe meds.

  • Depression/Anxiety just doesn't go away. You need to listen to your Doctor's advice. I take meds for my issue and it helps. It can take over your life so talk to your Doctor about this, seek some help. GL...

  • Check with our ob/gyn to see if there are any chemical imbalances in your system. And find a therapist.
