How Did You Know You Had PPD?

Was it diagnosed by a counsler, psychiatrist, OB, etc.?

And is there a way to manage the symptoms without meds?

Re: How Did You Know You Had PPD?

  • With my DD, I just knew I had it based on my symptoms.  I had extreme irritability and anger, crying spells, feelings of hopelessness, guilt, worthlessness, and anxiety.  My OB was concerned about me when I took a post-partum questionairre at my 6 week check up.  I knew something was wrong but was denying it cuz I didn't wanna be on meds.  I then went to a therapist after that.  I took meds for a little while, but I went to counseling for several months and the counseling helped more.  I hate taking meds, I much prefer talk therapy, but that's just me.
