Hi i just signed up with this so I could talk to some people about my problems. I had a baby about 5 months ago and 4 days after i had my daughter my post partum depression came! I moved down to Florida to be with my boyfriend where I picked up oxycontin as my antidepressant. Now i'm clean and my depression has only gotten worse. I feel like i'm always about to cry, That there's nothing to be happy about, I can't even pick myself up to do normal cleaning around the house. I even find it's getting harder and harder every day to take care of my own daughter, I'm just soooooo down and upset all day and crying. I have anxiety attacks when I'am alone and get very scared. I also heard depression causes physical symptoms, It also seems my body hurts all day and my lower back kills me where I can't even stand up straight. Can anyone tell me about this medication Cymbalta? My mother told me it sounds like the right one for me. Also I can just go to my primary care physician and get prescribed the antidepressants? Thanks for your help.
