Is it ever gonna go away?

Postpartum Depression.......is this crap ever go away? I've posted many times before, and everyone says hang in there, but it just seems like it will NEVER END! I've spoken to my OB, taking AD and it's still frickin here. Really, will it ever go away? Will I ever be a happy person again?

  • You need to get counseling help. Also, see if there is a support group for this in your area. You might also google it there could be one on line that might be helpful. Talking to others suffering or those who have suffered the same thing helps.

  • Are you sure you're being diagnosed for the proper thing? It may be that you're improperly diagnosed or the medication that you're on isn't helping the cause. I would research further into different medications or possibly different diagnosis.
