Hello!

My name is Shana and I am a mother of 2 and stepmother of 1. I have a 6 month old baby girl. I have also developed depression and anxiety. The depression is minimal, but the anxiety constantly has me feeling like i am about to die. I am afraid all the time, have heart palps and freak out. I am on 50 mg of Zoloft a day. I am just worried and feel very alone

Welcome!  You aren't alone here.  I personally have never had anxiety like that, but do suffer from depression.  There are plenty of ladies here that can help better with the anxiety part, but everyone here is supportive, so feel free to share whatever you want to!  I have never had a negative response on here, so it's safe to share.

Welcome, Shana.  I'm glad the depression is minimal, but hope you are able to get the anxiety under control soon.  This is a great group to be a part of.  HUGS

No, I don't feel like it helps.  I am on 50 mg because I was breastfeeding. I quit breastfeeding 2 weeks ago, and its been much worse since then.

Welcome. I struggled with lots of post partum anxiety too. Now that you are no longer nursing, see if you can up your meds. I needed to try a number of meds before I found the one that worked for me. Good luck!

 I am sorry you are going through all this you should probably call your dr and tell him you are not getting any better
