Who did you talk to? Were you afraid to be honest? I know I NEED to talk to someone, but I'm afraid they will take my kids away. :( It scares me so much that I have tried to hide it for several months. I'm just afraid I can't do this alone anymore...

No, I was not afraid. I know I needed the help badly, and was so glad I did.

I talked to my doctor she put me on pills without even seeing me. Then referred me to a therapist who only works 9-5 on weekdays when I have no one to watch my kids. So i took the pills and tried to deal. After 2 suicide attempts I broke down talked to my husband and he has been my support and im starting to work though it on my own. You can PM anytime you want. I had the same fear and even remember making a post on here asking if they could take me kids.

I'm here to try and help. I was afraid to say something because I didn't want people looking at me different or weird ya know? I had a small bit and think I still suffer a little bit and my son is 1 now (I also have an 8 year old daughter). I never had this with her and my body was all weird and crazy after my son. I would cry and cry and shake and just hated life.

It is so much easier to get help you can talk your head off and they will be there to help and listen. I talked to anyone when my PPD is really bad and it helps when someone is there to listen. But I am seeking counseling and I just started anti depressants.

I was HORRIFIED! I knew little about PPD, except that I had it! I was a trainwreck. I literally bought a bus ticket to LA from Michigan and almost left my daughter here with my BD and disappeared! Please dont be afraid to ask for help. I just mentioned it in passing to my OB and he immediately had me elaborate and started me on an antidepressant. It was like a day and night transformation!! Please feel free to PM me. I suffered for months and it only took me a week to start feeling better once I started the medication. Talk to someone, dont be ashamed! Its NOT your fault. <3

You aren't. Its not something you can control but you can do something now that know whats going on. Call your doctor and let them you know you are having some serious ppd issues and you would like to talk to somebody. Saying it outloud and actually admitting it was the hardest part for me. Just remember they see tons of women and PPD is very common. Nothing to be ashamed of even though it feels that way.

That is TEXTBOOK PPD though. Its really going to be okay. Just please talk to your doctor. I promise they will understand. I was so scared to tell my doctor, i had all of the same exact feelings. The only way to go is up! Dont let it get worse. Good luck momma, PM me if you need to.
