I have an 8 week old LO. He is my 2nd child. Before getting pregnant, I was on Xanax and proxac for anxiety, sleep, and depression. I lived in fear of everything, even irrational things. I haven't had my meds since I was pregnant, and I thought I did well without them minus the panic attacks. I am now back to where I was. Fear I will fall while carrying LO and crack his head, fear my husband won't care for him properly (This is irrational, as I know this isn't the case at all)...but I am also overwhelmed. I can't get anything around my house cleaned because LO is always needing to be held and my DS1 is SN and when he gets home from school, the process of dinner, homework, meds and bed is a 3 hr process and I just want to cry...and I sometimes snap at DS1 although I know what he is doing is beyond his control.
So, with all of these issues, could I have POD withe mt anxiety disorder? I can't do anything right now due to insurance issues but I was fine after DS1's traumatic birth, could LO's surprise CS be a factor? Thanks for any input.
