The Pill has made me happy again!

Doctors were convinced i had psychotic depression following post-natal depression. I just felt that at certain times of the month i couldnt cope with life as a single mum working full time.... had come to the conclusion i wasnt depressed. Have been on and off prozac and citalopram since my 3 year old daughter was born and nothing helped....though kicking my useless ex out helped somewhat! The doctor has put me on the Pill to try level out my hormones and it has worked.... still get tired and stresed but thats motherhood for you. Being single and working full time doesnt help but i am not hitting the extreme lows i was doing. Also evening primrose helped when i came off antidepressants last year. I had a really hard time when my daughter was born....basically didnt cope and she cried 24/7. However she is now a lively little madam with huge attitude but is great fun and I CAN COPE NOW..... If anti depressants arent working try asking for the Pill.

I can't take the Pill anymore so will have to stick to ads, but I'm glad you've found something that works for you.

The pill seems to have the opposite effect for me, but glad it is working so well for you
