I really would like to hear that you have gone to a doctor or a therapist for help for a little while anyway. Something healthy to help you deal with the depression and the ptsd for your children. They know you are not happy when we get this depressed even when they are just toddlers. I know that everyone told me too that it was just no big deal. They also said it wouldnt hurt at all and I swore for over a week after the surgery every time I stood up I thought all of my insides were gonna fall out and it hurt so bad.

RW - I hope that you are spared this depression. I understand totally your reasoning for no more babies. I just really hope that you do not go through this type of pain along with the rest of the stress that goes with having a baby and surgery. Good luck to the both of you.

thumkin,

sorry it has been so long. I have had a rough few days. Oh well, I will survive. The doctor did put me back on Zoloft, but it isn't going to help. I am having what almost seems to be panic attacks, it is horrible. And they keep telling me that it could take 4-6 weeks for this medication to take full effect. What am I suppose to do in the interum? I am losing my mind. I am getting worse and worse, instead of better. I am going to wind up in a hospital somewhere...it is crazy. I can't keep doing this though. My ultrasound looked fine though. Anyways, that is where things are right now. Like I said, sorry that it took so long. I am just frustrated.

scared,

I took zoloft and while they say it takes 4-6 weeks, they mean for the FULL effect.

I noticed something changing around week two and by week three, I KNEW things were changing.

I know you want change NOW, so try to be patient with yourself.

did you ask for something to take in the interim? perhaps an anti-anxiety like a valium or something? maybe with the new baby and your depression this may not be a good idea, but you can ask....otherwise, ask him for coping techniques to get you thru this....are there any support groups at the hospital for post partum moms?

I sense how frustrated you are...just know we are all here for you and we care and hope you get well soon.

Scared, I understand your frustrations, I really do. Please dont give up hope. I know right now it feels so bad, but try to keep positive thoughts in your head that helps a little. Thoughts like each day I know this medicine is going to affect me a little more and some of that black cloud will fade away. I forgot that one thing that really helped me a lot when I was at my worst was exercise. As soon as I no longer felt like my insides were falling out and my doctor gave me the okay I started exercising. My mornings were much easier to handle when I was exercising. I did it for six weeks and it really did help. I guess it was all the endorphins being released. I know ever since then if I start getting depressed I try to force myself to exercise. Because that time period was the worst I have ever been and it did relieve some of the depression.

Hold on. I will send up a prayer for you.

thumkin-

Thank you. I went to the OB again this morning. I saw a different doctor this time. A female. She doubled the zoloft that the other doctor put me on, added 150 mg of wellbutrin, and gave me some zanax to help me get through the really tough times. Now, we will see how things go. But that does give me a little bit of hope. I got very unhappy, and cried a lot while I was talking to her. But, I believed that she was listening to me. Just thought that I would let you know where things are at.

Scared, I am so glad this different doctor seems to be helping. You can do this and you will all be okay. I am just glad that something good has come out of the been there done that situation. I am not very good with words or with such sweet things as what you said being said to me. I am just glad that I could offer something good for you.

Thumkin,

Though I am not ever glad to hear of ones suffering, it helps to know that I am not alone. It helps to know that I am not some type of freak that can't handle reality. Maybe there is some truth in that, but it is nice to be able to talk to someone that KNOWS what I am going through. Not just someone who says that they understand when in all truth, they themselves have never been in that situation. While I believe that it is fully possible to sympathize with others and care for others ina bad situation, it is completely different than being able to truly understand the pain that someone else is feeling. Again, I do appreciate you. Know that you have touched the life and heart of another human being.
Thanks again.

(((scared))) just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and praying for you. I am sorry that the meds do not appear to be helping, but I'm glad the new doctor gave you some different options which may work better. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ready,

Thanks for your support as well. You have always been very supportive to me in all my threads. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. This is a tough time in my life, and I will get through it, but it is helpful to have this support group here.

Thumkin,

The big thing is that I am sick to my stomach. But, I also had 7 teeth pulled on thursday, so I am taking pain meds round the clock pretty much too. So I can't be sure of exactly what is making me sick. Or if it is even my lack od ability to eat much at this point. Emotionally things are a little rough. I took all of the maternity clothes out of my closet this weekend, and that made me sad too. I just hate this feeling. I want my ability back. I don't want any more kids, but I do want the right to have that choice back. Thanks for asking.

I am sorry to hear about the teeth thing, been there done that to but not 7 at once. Hopefully it is just the combo of meds making you feel ill to your tummy. As I read this I wanted to just tell you lets grab a box of kleenex, plop on the couch and just cry for 5-10 minutes. I remember how much taking out all my maternity clothes hurt. I kept them in a box for about 3 years. I still have some of my favorite ones and will probably always keep them in that box, but the rest I sold in a garage sale last summer. I know and Im sorry honey.

Support of your life partner is critical in Post Partum Depression. Nobody other can help you come out of it than the life partner himself. https://trifectahealthnyc.com/.....epression/
