A little over two weeks ago I was diagnosed with post partum anxiety, I am predisposed to anxiety and have been dealing with it most of my life. I was prescribed Zoloft and can you believe I have yet to take it ( I have anxiety over taking medicine for my anxiety!). Well, last night I finally made the realization that I really can?t do this on my own and this weekend I will begin taking it.
DH and I got into an argument and I was all over the board with my emotions and there was a new topic that I was in tears over every two minutes. DH finally said he can?t keep doing this and we need to find a way to make ?me? better before it takes a toll on our relationship. Part of me is irate because most of my issues stem from DH not helping out with the household chores and if he was just a little more understanding it wouldn?t always work itself into a fight. But then I remember that?s just where my anger is directed towards and it?s much deeper than that.
Zoloft it is then. I need to feel better before I go back to work or it will only get MUCH worse. I just don?t want this to effect my LO in any way (I EBF) so I was trying to fix myself. It?s just not that easy and I know that now. I don?t want to lose my family over anxiety.
If anyone has any encouraging words on Zoloft, I would love to hear your success stories...
