My LO is four months now and I'm a SAHM. I have pretty much closed myslef in the house and I have drastic mood swings from day to day. I don't talk to anyone besides my LO and DH. I use to exercise right after I had my LO but now I don't even do that.
I use to take walks but I'm afraid to leave the house. Afraid to walk the block around the block, afraid to go to stores, I hate going to Dr appts because I always run into people I know. When I carry on a conversation with someone I started feeling pain in my chest, I sweat and look for an exit.
I think I'm going crazy. I am very protective over my LO. I haven't even left him with a baby-sitter. I am waiting to get in for threapy now. I don't know how long it'll take.
Has anyone been through this or know what's going on? My DH is getting mad cause he says I'm changing but I don't know what's wrong.

it is alright . It is just anxiety and we all experience it. I have four now and still get like that occasionally. Try asking your doc for Lexapro until you start feeling better. I only take it after pregnancy and until the babies are around one. The thing you need to remember is that it takes a female body 5 years to fully recover from a pregnancy so there are a lot of hormones and extra floating around in there messing with your emotions. talking also helps so if you want msg me and i know what its like. This too shall pass Bless you
