Postpartum depression UPDATE

UPDATE:

So I went to the Dr this morning.  He put me on Zoloft.  I thought I would feel better, but I don't.  Now I'm worried about it working, making me tired, how long I'm going to be on it, and just plain sad that I'm broken.  It's very hard for me to admit defeat, especially when it has to do with my children.  I can't even raise my children without being medicated in order to do so.

 

 

 Wasn't really sure where to post this.  Tomorrow I have an appointment with my OBGYN for Postpartum Depression.  I really struggled and almost went to a bad place this February when my son was born, but I thought I was getting better.  The ugly monster has reared it's head again though.  No one knows I've felt this way, not even my husband.  I'm very good at making myself crap rainbows in front of others.  It's time to stop treading water and make it to shore, so today I told my mother and my husband, and I made an appointment for tomorrow morning.  I'm just hoping I can get better.

I'm glad you are getting help. I went though it with my first baby. It was a dark place. It will get better though.

I had some post partum depression after my second baby. When I called some local psychiatrists the soonest they could see me was like 4 months off. Are you kidding me?!? Further depressing when you finally reach out for help and everyone is too busy.

That's awful! I had it too with my first. I was in Romania and people are totally uneducated about it there. For the op, it's great you're seeking help. Having it out in the open is a first step. Sunshine and rainbows when it actually rains doesn't help anyone.

I had it after this last one. We were going through a lot of change around the time I had the baby and not just the obvious change of having another baby lol..

I'm glad that you're seeking help! If you need medication, there ARE many that are safe to take while breastfeeding. Don't let anyone tell you different.
