When I had my first dd I suffered with anxiety, having horrible thoughts that plagued me all day. I managed it on my own without ad's or counselling. When dd was around 9 months I started to feel bad again but we moved house a couple of months later and I picked up.
At the time I'm sure I read or heard that you get a surge of hormones or some kind of inbalance and you can feel low again.
Well ds2 is now 10 months and I'm feeling crap again. I didn't get the chance to feel better with ds1 as I fell pg with ds2 when ds1 as 6 months. Admittedly I have come off my AD's so that could be part of it.
I guess I just want someone to say that its normal and I'll feel ok again in a couple of months
fewer now, thank goodness- i have been on ADs for 2.5 weeks. The 2 weeks before and after i started them were horrendous.
What surprised me was that i didn't feel sad, it was a total absence of feeling that was my main symptom. Thankfully i am beginning to feel the love for my daughter and husband again. Still good and bad days
