Some days I feel like I am doing great and my meds are helping me feel even emotioned(figured that wasn't a word but its the only one I can come up with). Then there are other days where I feel off my rocker. About 2 months ago I went to Walmart with Megan and walked in and just felt dizzy overwhelmed and about ready to faint. I had to call DH and have him pick us up because I didn't feel safe to drive. Well today I went with SIL to the craft store and instantly felt overwhelmed. There were so many people they were very pushy and I just felt like I was running into everything. It was the strangest feeling and not a good one. Since losing my job at the beginning of the month I have started quilting and selling my blankets. The last few days it has been hard to even concentrate on them or even care enough to finish one. Sorry I just really needed to vent about it. I feel even worse because I co-host Moms of Infants and TP and feel like I have been slacking on them. I don't want to step down but sometimes my drive for it is lost.

Sounds like you are having panic attacks. Does your doc know about them? I understand losing your drive to do things. I think it is probably best to hold on to these things as long as you can though. I don't know about you but I tend to isolate myself when I get depressed which just makes it worse.
I agree with the other ladies. And dont worry too much about the boards. Do you have a co host on TP? Just try to meet your posting requirements as much as you can and I can post more new threads on infants to help Emma keep up hun
When I was on Zoloft, it was bumped up by half pills. Have you been on any other meds? It does sound like you are having panic problems, and sometimes a different anti-depressant can work differently on you and help ease some of those problems. I switched to Prozac (and it's a $4 prescription) when I had PPD and it helped a lot more.
