did pregnancy/child rearing make you crazy?

i've always been a little off my rocker, but once i got pregnant i got downright crazy! i thought it would go away once my son was born but its only gotten worse! my 'friend' told me 'come on be normal you werent always this way i have 2 kids and am pregnant now and im not crazy' and im like 'yeah let me just rewire my brain!' i dont act this way for my health im genuinely looney!

i have HORRIBLE mood swings, i have obsessive thought disorder, and i'm crazy. i used to just be a little crazy.

any ideas?

  • MEDS! take some meds :)

    i'm fucking off my rocker and i know it... i've actually mellowed down since being pregnant, probably because i'm not an alcoholic now. i'm still depressed to shit though, just passive depression.

  • I think most people have the potential of being crazy and having kids just helps bring it out! I got over most of my craziness when my kids grew up and moved out so there is hope ladies!
