I have generalized anxiety disorder. It was very well under control before I got pregnant and has been manageable since. The past few weeks I have been feeling increasingly anxious, which I expected and know how to handle. But I have also been feeling weirdly apathetic, having a hard time making decisions, and not as interested in things. I know that those are all signs of depression. So between these new symptoms and my usual anxiety disorder, I'm really concerned about developing a bad problem postpartum.
My question is, can anyone offer tips or advice on preventing PDD or PDA, or at least making it more manageable? I am going to talk about my concerns with my midwife and my psychiatrist this week, but I am just wondering if anyone has any "real talk" for me or can share her experience. Thanks!
