I've made a few posts on here so thought id do an update about where I'm at.
suffered from pp in March 2014, onset was on day five after my son was born (easy straightforward birth) i was hospitalised on day 13 after getting no sleep since my son was born. Was prescribed Aripriprizole and had no negative side effects.
luckily didn't suffer from depression afterwards. I did however suffer from anxiety afterwards, particularly about feeding Glenn or being alone with him. That reduced after a couple of months and i was able to take over as main carer.
i still think about pp every day, another sufferer (28 years ago) says that's common but it fades.
I'm back at work and off the medication now so fingers crossed that I'll remain healthy.
