After DS was born, I was diagnosed w/ PPD. I went on prozac (I've had depression in the past & my dr. & I decided since I've used prozac & it worked, we'll stick w/ it). I weaned myself off of it around 3 months (my dr. never said when to/if ever!). I had forgotten to take it for a week and was feeling great.
DS is now 5months, almost 6 months and I have been feeling so rundown & wanting to just bawl my eyes out. I'm not sure if it's the PPD creeping back up, or if it's just me overwhelmed w/ a full time job (that is requiring extra hours right now), being a mom, husband gone during the week, keeping up the household, and studying 2-3 hours/night for a huge exam I need to take end of October. I'm not sleeping well and I'm not sure if that's due to the anxiety/stress of my life right now or the PPD.
Remember how when the babe was teeny tiny & you were sleep deprived & you wanted to just sit & cry about everything (w/o the PPD), but once you laid down for 30-40 min you felt better? That's kind of how I feel..
Also, anyone feel guilty about not enjoying their babe at the beginning because of the PPD? I feel like that's precious time I'll never get back - he was such a cute & snuggley little nugget, I didn't take advantage/enjoy it like I feel I wanted to.
Anyways...must keep putting 1 foot in front of the other. As my mother always says - this too shall pass. Just wanted opinions on if I should go back on the prozac or not.
