I didn't even know PPA existed until I started researching signs and symptoms of PPD...but I'm pretty sure I have it.
When I first had DD, my anxiety was all over the place. My heart would jump at the smallest cry and a full on cry made me feel like I was being kicked in the gut while having a heart attack and panic attack all at the same time.
When DD was about 3 weeks old, it stopped...but then it returned.
Everything makes me jump. It honestly takes everything I have to run the vacuum because the sound plucks at my nerves. When DD cries during a diaper change or change of clothes, my hands shake so bad that I usually have to leave her clothes unbuttoned until she calms down. I tried to play Call of Duty the other day with my husband and I just couldn't because with every loud noise, I had a mini meltdown and would drop the controller. Even if I know there's a loud sound coming, it scares me to death nonetheless.
I have an appointment with my MW in a few days, but I wanted to see if anyone could give me some information on how PPA is treated, if it gets better, ect.
Thanks in advance!
