Do you have any positive stories to share about how treating your PPD has helped you?

It's been 2 years since the birth of my son and I am still on lexapro(started taking it last year when my husband was deployed to Iraq) .

I feel like my old self now and I am able to enjoy life and enjoy my little man.
It is amazing what PPD and anxiety can do to a person.
Just last night I was watching Thomas and Friends with my baby and thinking back to last year when I would sit there and watch the same episode and just cry while holding him and watching and listening to the songs on there.Sounds crazy I know....But I am very thankful each and every day.

PPD is a terrible ordeal to go through and I hope that everyone suffering will call their doctor and get help so they can enjoy life and enjoy their little ones.

By dealing with it I am able to get myself back on track. I don't just sit and cry or wallow. I have done meds and other methods depending on what I felt I needed. This time I am trying to work out. I also see a counselor this time around. Since I suffer from it with my miscarriages too it really sucks.
