I thought it would be a good idea to introduce our selves and discuss how we dealt with PPD.
I had PPD really bad with my #3. I was on this crazy emotional roller coaster ride. I couldnt control my moods. I just cry knowing what I put my kids through!
I would be so happy then raging mad 5 min later. which would be followed rivers of tears. I got so bad that I wished I would die. I knew I wouldnt hurt my kids no matter how bad I got. I never wanted anything to happen to them. It was me I didnt care about. I didnt want to kill myself, I just wished death would find me.
Thinking back to that time in my life.....WOW, I am so proud of myself for overcoming such depression.
My last baby I was told during my pg that I needed to seek professional help. Because normally PPD gets worse with each baby. But I was able to control it this time around. I didnt take meds I just talked about it. Instead of hiding it all in. Dont get me wrong I still had bad moments but not like before.
With my other two babies I just had the baby boo-hoo blues.
anyhow..........tell your story!
#3-DS-10/09/00~m/c a twin with him
Being a first time Mom, a person is overwhelmed to say the least. About 10 days after I had Brock, I realized that I was on auto pilot. Change Brock, Feed Brock, Burp Brock, Put Brock down for nap, etc. I was feeling no emotion for him. I was thinking, what in the world have I gotten myself into? As soon as I would put him down for a nap, I would cry uncontrollably. Why? I had no idea whatsoever. I wanted to run away, or take him back to the hospital, or beat myself up because I couldn't understand why I didn't have this immediate love for him like I was supposed to. So, I gave my doctor a call. He had me come in and immediately diagnosed me with PPD. I was put on 100mg of Zoloft. It did wonders for me!!! A few days after starting it, I started to fall in love. I am now so happy with motherhood. I wouldn't give up my son for the world!
