Since i had PPD after my son was born, my chances were 50/50 & evidently i got the short end of the stick. I felt fine emotionally till yesterday evening. Then it happened. With no rhyme or reason, I went from "me" to an irrationally panicked, majorly depressed mess. Not your typical "overwhelmed, new Mom of 2," but a mom certain she could never handle 2 kids, nor did she want to, but who was now stuck with the responsibility of just that. Trapped. Hopeless. And then an hour later, I'm me again. An hour doesn't sound bad, but i assure you its the worst hour you could imagine. And same thing happened this morning.
Anyways, I did the placenta encapsulation & increased the number of capsules, & also increased my Zoloft, which my midwife urged me to do before birth, but I was just so sure I'd be fine. Fortunately my Mom is still here & it looks like I'll be heading back to FL with her now, till I get better.
I wouldn't wish this on even my worst enemy, but I'm reaching out in hopes of BTDT moms who could offer support. I could really use it.
I dont have experience, but I offer my support. I will be thinking of you and keep you and your family in mt prayers. I hope adjusting your zoloft as well as the placenta capsules makes a difference. Love and light! *hugs*
Thank you *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!
I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.
HUGS Lindsey....you will be in my thoughts and prayers that this passes for you soon. So happy to hear you will have your mom's support. I hope the placenta capsules and zoloft help you feel more like your usual self very soon!
I don't have any experience with this...but I know many ladies in this DDC have, so I am sure they will chime in soon!
