Sooo...after MONTHS of feeling like I was run over by a mack truck, my mom finally guilt tripped me into going to the doctor.  Doctor did some blood work, talked to me, I had my wee one with me (and she was in TRUE form...climbing, jabbering, etc...every nurse there had to play with her). We went over my past treatments and he suggested trying celexa.  At that point, I just wanted something that would give me get up and go...i.e. I was contemplating reintroducing caffeine into my life.  Anyway, I started my meds the next morning and later that day, the nurse called me and told me that EVERYTHING was low (my iron, D, cholesterol, etc) and added a hand full of vitamins to the mix.  Within a week I started feeling semi human.  Now, I feel quite good...my blood pressure had even gone down when I went in for my follow up!  While I was at my WIC appointment, I read a Post Partum psychoses poster...I had 7/8 of the symptoms for PPD :-\

That's so good! Low vitamins are usually a first fix for feeling down and inhuman. I still take prenatals and my daughter is 8 months old and I was even taking them in high school. Always always take them. b-12 is really good too. I got on paxil and found it to be wonderful. I was relieved to find a pill that didn't make me feel wierd. Hope it keeps going good for you!
