Hi, my name is Khadra. Im 29, married, and a SAHM of two little girls ages 2 and 3. I am pregnant with our third child (a boy due in Feb) and I have had mental issues (how bad does that sound) since I was 6.
I have battled Generalized anxiety disorder, hypochondria and clinical depression on and off FOR YEARS. i have been through many meds and at the moment I am trying to be med free until the baby is born, but the day after someone better get me some Paxil I have been pregnant on Paxil before, but this time I was off and didnt want to re start with all the side effects while I was in my frist trimester. Im doing ok, but not great.
I browsed around a bit and I think I could fit in here and soon the PPD board.
I hope no one minds me jumping in!!
No way we don't mind Khadra! More the merrier (in better circumstances though) but that is why we have this board, to help those who may have some mental illnesses and looking for some support that they might not be able to get elsewhere. I must give you kudos though, having 3 kids and dealing with all that? You are amazing mom and a great person to try to juggle everything especially now-drug free!
Hope to get to know you more.
I am Dori, I am a single mother who has and have Cerebral Palsy, with Adult Onset Seizures, with depression and Anxiety/panic attacks. I have a 3 yr old daughter named Alexis Joella.
I just discovered this forum as well! I have been having these symptoms of what is now a "tumor" lately. I am too, a hypocondriac, and I am deathly afraid of dying and leaving my daughter and husband all alone. I feel like I'm all alone and I'm crazy. My husband doesn't want to hear about it anymore, and wants me to get some help, so tomorrow I'm on my way to see a psyciatrist. I'm really scared, because my mind tells me that it's something physical, but my loved ones are telling me it's completely mental, and I need to get some help for it. I guess I have had this for a long time. I just didn't realize it.
