  • It is all in your head baby, your pefectly fiXable with medication head. Postpardum depression /anxiety panic disorder is a very real sickness and if your moodswings and cumpulsions are interferring with your life (which I am almost positive they are) then they most definitely need to be treated. There is the posibility that you may also be bipolar. When I was in thorough treatment for bipolar disorder I did some research. 50% of cases left untreated (means they were diagnosed but didnt get any more help) commited suicide. 50%! Mental illness can kill dear and it sounds like you have a crapload of stuff on your plate to begin with as if being a teen isnt hard enough add in a baby and a mom who doesnt listen, you've got the recipe fro a breakdown. If your mom won't listen to you talk to a guidance counselor at school or even your local human services department. You NEED to see a doctor. Medication for this stuff takes 2cont

  • weeks to take effect and in the meantime you will probably want some talk therapy for support since your mom seems to be clueless in that area. Yes mood swings are part of being a teen but your generation is faced with challenges that even mine didnt have. There is so much more pressure and anxiety for a teen today it's not surprising that more and more are being diagnosed with depression etc. Please get help hun and message me if there is anything I can do for you

  • You need to see your OB/GYN or regular doctor ASAP. This is not just becasue you are a teenager. It could be post partum depression, anxiety/panic disorder or Bipolar, Please for your sake and your baby's go to your doctor, sooner rather than later.
