Has anyone ever heard of this? I'm 6 weeks PP, and just suddenly started feeling "off" early last week. I thought maybe I was suffering from PPD, but I'm not depressed. Instead, I'm increasingly anxious. It's like all of my childhood fears are coming back to me. I need someone to talk to. I'm not sure what's rational or irrational thinking anymore. At night, I feel like I'm being watched and am constantly looking over my shoulder. I've been hypersensitive to sounds and lights and shadows. My eyes keep playing tricks on me. I keep having these intrusive thoughts of someone hurting me, or worse, I'm hurting myself. I would NEVER act on those thoughts, but it's really scary and only making the anxiety worse. I know this isn't right. I'm seeing my OBGYN tomorrow, but I'm not sure what she can do to help.
I just need to talk to someone. I'm trying so hard to keep it together for my little ones. No one other than my mom or DH knows what's going on. I'm scared if I tell someone, they'll think I'm crazy and try to take my kids away.
