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'm really sorry Lindsey.
Hopefully you'll get some relief from the increase in the placenta capsules and Zoloft.
