  • Of course hun! I got PPD too all the way up until my son was about six months. He was a preemee and was in the hospital in the NICU so it was really hard to cope, then just getting into the swing and a LOT of family drama bogged me down not to mention no friends! Talking it out is the best thing I would suggest a counselor! GL...message me if you need a friend I am always free to help

  • i personally didnt but my older sister did with her first. she was 16 and i was 12 and me, her and her son were all living at home with our mom and dad and i saw a lot. she was very depressed, and even tried to kill herself. i dont know what she was prescribed but it seemed to work because 3 months after she came home from the hospital she was a new person. im just glad you understand that you have PPD, because no one in my family caught on until it was too late
