I'm Cath, I'm 31 and I'm a mum to my adorable 18 month old son.

I had PND when my son was born and was put on anti depressants for a while but I came out of it and stopped the pills. For this last month or so I have felt really down. I'm low, irritable, tearful, angry, and anxious. I feel like this all the time. I live with my fiance and I know he is getting the brunt of it but I don't feel like I can help it. I suffer from Fibromyalgia which I know can cause depression but I have never felt like this before, even with my PND. I thought it was my pill making me moody so I changed to another but I don't feel there has been any improvement at all.

I hate feeling so low and so irritable etc. I don't have much faith in my doctors and I feel a bit like I'm lost and don't know what to do with myself.

Just feel like I need to tell someone how I'm feeling. x

It sounds like the meds were helping you. Can you go back on them? Often we feel better and we think we are healed. I did that once. Only to find out the med was what was making me feel better.

I would talk to the doctor about continueing your medications.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Cath,
Hope you are feeling better!!!!   You sound like you did what I did last year, and went of my meds because I was feeling so much better.  Maybe you can ask that your medication that you were taking for the PPD can be refilled?   Having an 18month old and feeling down is not much fun and can make such a happy time feel loney and sad.  This is what I would do.  I hope this helps
Hugs to you too Karen
