I have a friend who is saying she has PPD as well. Some of things she has been telling me kind of don't make sense though. She's kind of a known drama queen and hypochondriac. I'd never call her out on this but I'm just wondering if you think some of the things she is saying sound "off" to you guys.
1) She has no history of depression/anxiety. Her doctor started her on 200 mg of Zoloft ( I think that's what she is on not 100% sure now ). I don't know if it's just because we are on different medications but I'm only on 60 mg of prozac, had a history of depression, thoughts of suicide and hurting my daughter, and was even hospitalized so her dosage seems HIGH to me.
2) She says her doctor thinks she developed PPD because her baby was a preemie. Her child was born at 37 wk and some days and over 7 lbs with no health problems.
3) She says her doctor didn't recommend counseling because it would "just be pointless anyways"
