My dd is almost 3 months old also, and I am still going through PPD. I use Lexapro, and man does it work wonders! I wasn't diagnosed until my dd was 6 weeks old....it was hell before the Lexapro. Some women get over it within a matter of months, some take years, and for some it lasts a lifetime... But I think if you really want to, PPD can be controlled! I was so ashamed at first, I didn't want to tell my husband or my family, because I felt like a bad mother, and I didn't want anyone to think I couldn't take care of my baby... but I got over that quick. And now that I have the meds I feel like a wonderful mother, I function great, and I live a normal, healthy life!!! ... Goodluck momma!!
