I'm just wondering if ppd can happen suddenly after 5 months postpartum? For the past week or so I've been feeling really down,upset,moody,irritable etc. Today is actually the only day that I haven't cried. I am going to see a therapist on tuesday. Part of my problem to is that I feel overwhelmed with everything. I am one of those people that have goals in mind and may start one or two of them but almost always never finish them. I was against going on medication but I want to just feel better. I feel like I'm on a roller coaster and today just happens to be a better "happy" day. Is that what ppd is like happy one day and then sad the next?

Thanks girls. Yesterday was the only day that I didn't cry in over a week and today I was on the verge of tears. I can't wait to go see this therapist tomorrow. Earlier I felt so anxious that I had knots in my stomach but now I feel ok. It's so weird how one minute you're fine and the next you're so emotional. When I spoke to my Mom about this she just said you're a great mother and to just take one day at a time.

My appointment went great. My therapist was so easy to talk to and asked all the right questions. I did make the decision to go on zoloft(a low dose) to help. I was against medication at first but I want to do what is best for me,my daughter and my husband. The only thing that makes me nervous is the so called withdrawals after being off this medication of cutting down. I have another appointment next week. Today is definately a better day, I still feel anxious but not as moody or depressed. She basically said I have anxiety and depression and possibly a touch of ADD, great huh! Well I know I'm not the only one. It's nice to have this group to relate too. Thanks everyone.
