Welcome! Do you find the meds to be helping you now?  I have attempted suicide and I am lucky to still be here.

Welcome!  this is a great group to meet other moms who struggle with depressiona nd other mental health issues.  I can relate, I thought I was going to have a girl the second time around, plus DH was told by his doc he couldn't have kids so it was a shock when I found out I was pregnant.  I felt detached during my pregnancy too but once my second son was born that all went away.

Quoting Mrs_Saylor:

Hello! I'm new to CafeMom. My therapist suggested I try to put myself out there more and interact with other moms, that I might learn from them how they dealt/deal with depression and what has helped them in the past.
I'm currently pregnant with my second child, my son Noah is 14 months. I just found out that I'm expecting a little girl in June.
When I learned the news I thought I'd be over the moon, I've always wanted a little girl, but I be found that I'm not "moved" by this pregnancy at all. I'm not rushing out to baby stores to pick out little pink clothes or pinning nursery ideas on Pinterest, like I thought I would. I just feel so detatched. I've heard it's normal to not be as invested in your second pregnancy because you're so busy taking care of your first. But to feel nothing at all?

Welcome!  How is therapy going? I have ptsd and it greatly affects my life.  I've had several traumas and have worked through and accepted a few of them but not all yet.  its a long healing process but worth it.

Quoting Tina51097:

Hi, I'm Tina. I'm a 40 year old married woman with a 15 year old son Trevor who has Autism. I also homeschool him. It can be very stressful. I have recently starting seeing a therapist about my past trauma. It has been really hard to tell someone what happened to me. My husband didn't even know. My marriage was falling apart. I had to do something. I have been carrying it around with me all these years. My shoulders feel so heavy and I'm so tired.

Hello. I'm sherri. I'm 22 a wife and mother of a 9 week old baby girl. I've suffered with depression since 2005. I'm on meds for it but it's still a struggle. My dh is also suffering from depression/mental problems and is currently in the psych ward. It feels pretty much like I'm a single mother even though I'm married...

 I left my profile open for anyone to see so you all are welcome to check it out. Left it a bit vague. Need to work on it some more. I'm 33, wife of 11 yrs and mother of what I call many: 7 yr old daughter, 5 yr old son, 2 yr old son, 3 yr old pitbull, and 3 1 yr old pet rats and yes, they respond to me when I say it's mommy when talking to them! Lol I love music. Dominantly, I deal w/ bipolar 2 but my last antidepressant has put me into rapid cycling which has proved disasterous. Am now on a mild mood stabilizer on top of the one I have now to help calm down the rapid c. so I'm dealing and being positive about when I can get started on the new antidepressant :)

Hi. I'm Jessie and I'm new to this group. I just gave birth to my second child, my first son. It was a terrible pregnancy, emotional wise, and I haven't been able to cope with  a lot of things that were said during this pregnancy by family and friends and even my son's father.

A year ago I started seeing a counselor for some memory lapse issues. I lose track of days, sometimes weeks in which I don't remember anything. During those weeks, I tend to change a lot of things. I created a timeline for my counselor and we figured out that these blackouts occur right after stressful events. She mentioned that she thought I might have schizoaffective disorder and I panicked and never went back. Now, my son is 3 weeks old and I'm starting to have some serious issues. I keep waking up in teh middle of the night, panicking because I feel like "omg, I've slept, now he's going to be gone." And there was even once, I woke up panicking and calling my dr because I thought I was 2 weeks overdue, totally forgetting that I even gave birth.

I'm just hoping I can find support in this group, and maybe someone who has been where I have been. Even if it's just a little.

 Hi Jinell, I too have the same feeling as you, but never took meds. Do you find they help?
