I'm reluctant to put this out there just b/c I haven't seen anything on here and I kind of feel like everyone's doing fine and I'm the oddball. I went for my 6 week check-up today and they had me fill out a questionnaire in the waiting room. I was holding back tears while filling it out. I know I probably have PPD just from the crying all the time, anxiety about being left alone to care for 2 kids, sadness that I can't do menial tasks right, sadness I"m not being a good mother and wife, and I have more stress in my life that is overwhelming me right now. But I was starting to try things like work out, tan for vit. d, changing diet, getting out more, etc.
When they say me they immediately gave me an anti-depressant prescrip and a date w/ a counselor. I just don't know if I want to start taking pills that I don't know if I can get off of and I'm worried about how much can go to DS. Has anyone else been through this kind of thing or going through it now? How do the pills feel or did you try to kick it naturally? I'm really wary of it, but I also know that things are starting to get out of hand and I need to get a handle on this. I don't I started crying when the midwife asked how I was coping and now I'm in a daze over this. DH doesn't want me to take them b/c he's seen his mother, bro, and sis on them and how they haven't been able to get off and yet they're still unhappy even w/ the meds.
I don't know, I also had high blood pressure when I've never had it before so they want to see me in 2 weeks about that and how I'm doing on the pills. I just don't know what to do.
