Hi everyone...it has been a while since I have posted on here and I need to talk to someone who understands anxiety and depression - and I know I will find it here since you are all so supportive! I just had a beautiful baby boy on April 4, 2007 and he is the most wonderful joyous baby ever! This past week, however, my anxiety and depression just came back out of the blue - and with a vengeance! My husband doesn't understand and really doesn't seem to care either so I have no one to talk to or rely on at home! I wake up in the morning again and start the attacks first thing. Then comes the anticipatory feelings, the feelings that I want to cry...I am always looking at my face in the mirror to see if it is red or if my pupils are big, etc. I know I am feeding it, but can't help it! I am taking 75 mg of Effexor XR and .5 mg of Xanax twice a day. (They aren't really helping). Is this normal since I just had a baby, or is the anxiety really back? Thanks for reading and listening everyone!!
