Hi there all! I am not sure if I fit the criteria for this forum. I have clinical depression/anxiety (obsessive worry--when untreated, and OCD--again worse when untreated). So, It's a struggle. I have checked into a few boards (I am new to this site) and this seems to be a good fit for me.
Currently, I am expecting my third child and TRYING so hard to stay off of my meds. My family is having a bit of the backlash, but is being supportive of my "moments". I can say I have found Zoloft and that has worked wonders for me. I am scared (ironic, huh) to stay on it while pregnant. I have taken meds (almost a quarter of the dose and less...and only on occassion) while pregnant with my last child. My first child, I made it med free.
I am really feeling low today. Keep hearing mixed messages about taking meds. My doc is fine with it. THen I hear comments of what a bad parent I am if I take them and that I should not have children at all BECAUSE I take meds ("not fair to the unborn child" and should get a tubal!!!!).
That statement made me so angry inside. Everyone has the right to bear children if it works out that way. THere's some pretty "normal" people out there having children who treat them like crap and they aren't told to get "fixed".
It just really made me sad and uggggh, and left me feeling a little hopeless and like a failure.
I didn't mean to ramble. Just wanted to give a little background as to what brings me here and if this is the right place for me to be.
