Well I can be a member of this board now and I wanted to introduce myself.
I have 2 daughters both born prematurely.
Angelynn was born Nov.12/07 by emergency c-sec at 24+5 and weighed only 1lb 8oz. She will be two next month and is pretty much caught up and doing very well.
Raylene was born Aug.25/09 also by emergency c-sec at 35 weeks weighing 5lb 4oz. She's now about 8lb and doing very well.
After DD1 I was diagnosed with PPD and put on some medication for about 9 months. It didn't work for me and I was on birth control and I think the two were counter effecting eachother so I self weaned.
In jan of this year my doctor diagnosed me with clinical depression and wanted to start me on some new meds but that day I found out I was pregnant so I chose to hold off until she was born.
I'm 6 weeks PP now and just started new anti-depressants. I have many symptoms, some of which have gotten worse so I decided it was time to see the doctor.
I hate feeling like i'm not in control of my body and I hate that I need to take medication but I want to feel better and live a better life so I hope it will help. The doctor said it typically takes 4-6 weeks for them to start working but I hope it works quicker for me. I also want to start being more physically active which I hope helps too.
Please if anyone has some good coping strategies or ways I can help myself I would love to hear them. I just want to be back to normal!
Thank you HeatherW97 for my siggy
