Hello and welcome to HW, it's lovely to have you with us. It is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed as a new mother. Congrats for that by the way
I would think about talking to your doctor about maybe going back on the meds again, are you breastfeeding????
Do you have friends or family who can help you through this time? Anxiety is very hard to deal with and I would hate to think of you going through this alone. We have manyh members who have worked through similar situations and I am sure they will be along soon to offer advice or support.
Thank you for replying! Iv'e never been on one of these support groups and im glad to have found it. It really is over whelming being a single mother. I live with my mom but shes usually at work and i don't like to bother her with it. I know this sounds silly but im embarassed. I tell her sometimes but she dont take me serious. It's like if she thinks i want attetion or something. So i usually bottle it up. Yes i do breast feed and kinda scared of taking meds again because they can be addicting and dependable. When i got off my meds the first time i had really bad withdrawls. Right now im on maternity leave and im scared of going back to work because thats how i quit my last job. i was always scared of having another attack and i had one at work. i really wouldnt want to have one at this job. It's embarassing for me . i think i might go back to counceling
Hello and a warm welcome to you. I am Kitt. I am sorry you have anxiety and I am wondering if your post partum blues has you right now. I would really like to see you return to your OB physician and talk this out. See what else you might be able to do with the new baby and anxiety. I am sure you are not alone in this feeling.
It kind of creeps up on new Moms and please know you are not alone. Do count on us and your family to help you out. Let your friends know how you feel.
Email Me if you would like to.
