I have not spoken with a doctor yet but before pregnancy I had a history of depression an anxiety but had managed it. I do not like being on antidepressants, the do not seem to agree with me and I'd rather not rely on a pill. (Not judging anyone on medication)
Anyway I have been feeling really low lately. I do not want to go out, I am not enjoying my daughter like I should, and have nothing but negative thought about myself and my capabilities as a parent. I also have a history of ED and that is coming back along with the self loathing and super negative self image.
Is there anyway to deal with ppd without medication? Is anyone managing theirs without it or is it hopeless? Can you breastfeed on medication?
