Feeling Depressed, Anxious, And Angry...(Long)

I have had postpartum depression for 4 1/2 months. I am so sick of all of these medications. I had a med added about a month ago. About 2 to 3 weeks into starting this med I started to have suicidal and homicidal thoughts. I made an extremely difficult decision. I called and asked for help. I wanted my children to be safe. They were placed in foster care. They have been gone for 11 days. I'm depressed because I miss them so much. I receive supervised visits with them 2 times a week for 3 hours each day. However I do call them everyday..sometimes twice a day. I'm anxious because someone else is taking care of my children. And because I do not know how long this process will be. And, finally, I'm angry at myself. I'm angry about all the times they irritated me. I'm angry about yelling and saying hurtful things to my older son. I'm angry about the times I was impatient with them. And I'm angry that I have depression anxiety.

 hugs! you did the right thing, even though I know how much it hurts you, hopefully it will give you the push to continue to get the help that you need so that you can get them back soon.
