wanted to let everyone know i'm still here, just lurking These last 3 or 4 weeks have been the worst weeks ever. The kids and hubby are great, I just had to come to term with the fact that I have PPD. My anxiety and OCD have been through the roof. Coupled with an infant who won't sleep unless held and a 2 year old who suddenly devloped the WORST attitude on the planet was enough to throw me completley over the edge. I had my 6 week postpartum appointment yesterday and talked about it with my doc. we decided to have me go back on zoloft, i was on it before I got preggo for my anxiety with work and school. I took the first one last night and forgot how loopy and dizzy the make me feel for the first few days. But i'm thankful to have something to help.
I just wish I hadn't waited so long to start the meds. I kept telling myself it wasn't PPD and that all I needed to do was get organized but the kicker was crying on Halloween when my FIL took wyatt to a couple of houses before I could even get Reagan out the door. That kinda took the cookie and reminded me that me being healty for my kids is more important than trying to be "not sick"
Just wanted to Vent, poor DH is so tired of dealing with my wonky mood swings and outbursts.

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time, but hopefully the medication will help. It's been really adjusting to having two for me as well. Hugs.
