Did (do) you chose to medicate or not?

I took meds my first pregnancy. I was on Ativan (Lorazepam) and Celexa (Citalopram). I could not stop taking the Ativan because of family history of seizures. Our son was born with many, many problems and died as a result. I am currently stopping my Ativan (stepping down 0.5mg at a time) under my doc's close care.
It's hard, GOD it's hard. My brain produces too much seratonin and my meds regulate that....with out them....it's getting scary. I would NOT advise quitting anything without close supervision from your doc / psych. It's already been planned that, when we do get a BFP, if I need help I will be admitted to a private room in the hospital for psych care. I am not a self harmer, I feel I could hurt others when I'm manic.
I love the pregnancy journal idea. I'll put that one in my back pocket if/when I need it
