My struggle through the darkness — The Bump
Postpartum Depression

My struggle through the darkness

Recently found out I'm pregnant with baby #3! Surprise! I never planned on having another baby because I was terrified of having anther postpartum mood disorder since I experienced it with my first two. Now I have weaned off my Paxil and am having a lot of withdrawal symptoms. Today I have been sobbing for no apparent reason. I'm hoping this is just the initial withdrawal and my moods will get more stable. Otherwise I will have to switch to a safer med for pregnancy.
Glad I found this board and also just wanted to share an article I wrote last year for maternal mental health awareness.
