Glad this board is here. I was wondering if anyone else had experience with depression before giving birth and then experiencing PPD? If so, did/does the medication you were on prior to delivering work for your PPD? I stopped taking my meds while pregnant and decided I had to start up again about 2 mos. after LO arrived but I am noticing that this depression is completely different than my normal depression and the meds are not working as well. I am on Wellbutrin XL for what it's worth.
Anyone else in the same boat? What are you doing?
I also am having a hard time with how different this depression is. It is the first time I have actually really wanted to be happy and can't. For the most part I had come to accept my depression and I used to be fine wallowing in my own self pity (sometimes). Now that LO is here I actually feel like enjoying life but somehow can't seem to figure out how and it is breaking my heart.
