Hi everyone my name is Sandra and I was diagnosed with PP 2 weeks after the birth of my son. I ended up spending 4 weeks in an MBU and put on olanzapine to help with my symptoms. 9 months later and I am coming off the olanzapine but they have me on sertraline to help with the depressive symptoms I was having. I will continue to take this for another 6 months on the advice of my psychiatrist.
I am due back at work in less than a months time and I'm feeling anxious about it. I do want to get back into a routine but I'm worried I'll relapse due to the stressful nature of my job. My boss knows about the PP but I don't think they'll make allowances because of it. How did everyone else cope with work after recovery?
