Recently found out I'm pregnant with baby #3! Surprise! I never planned on having another baby because I was terrified of having anther postpartum mood disorder since I experienced it with my first two. Now I have weaned off my Paxil and am having a lot of withdrawal symptoms. Today I have been sobbing for no apparent reason. I'm hoping this is just the initial withdrawal and my moods will get more stable. Otherwise I will have to switch to a safer med for pregnancy.
Glad I found this board and also just wanted to share an article I wrote last year for maternal mental health awareness.http://birthtouch.com/2013/05/psiblog-hop-guest-post-struggling-through-the-darkness-my-journey-to-recovery/#more-1625
Wishing hope to you all as you continue this journey. Please know you are never alone and it's not your fault. Reach out for help when you need to!
