I'm limited to what med I can take for my PPD because of my seizures. It really only left me with two options. Lexapro or Prozac. I am not a prozac fan so chose the lexapro. My supply has been taking a dive lately anyway and it was a huge struggle. I could never build up a stash I couldnt even make enough to fulfill his needs daily and had to supplement. It wasa long hard fought battle and i feel horribly guilty as little man was wanting to try and nurse this morning as i was so engorged I'm sure he could smell it and I had to not let him and oh how he pouted. Broke my heart.
