I have suffered with postnatal depression on both of my children to which was horrendous!!!
Forward 5 years and I was in a fantastic place after losing my dad and struggling to manage my grief but I did and all without meds.
Today I feel like I'm going out of my head with anxiety!
We bought a puppy and oh my I did not expect to feeling this way at all!
I have lost 9 lbs in weight and my whole body feels on 🔥
I had to take the puppy back to at least relieve some of my stress to which for a few days it did and I thought great that was the problem and now it's gone I'm fine 🙂
NO I'm not fine and am battling with myself every day.
It's only been 3 weeks in all but feels like a lifetime and with a demanding job and two children I need to be me! Assertive confident me!
Originally in the 1st week my doc prescribed sertraline for the anxiety and I took one and OMG that 1st night I had constant panic attacks. Not sure if I associated the tabs with the anxiety or was it just me in that cycle????
I am slightly better this week and the anxious feeling subsides for parts of the day but I'm still struggling 😢
