This is my first post. I am very thankful to have found this forum, it helps a lot to know that I am not alone..
I was diagnosed with PP in July, spent three weeks in hospital. It was three months after my beautiful baby girl was born.
I am on medication and seeing a psychologist and a psychiatrist but recently had two panic attacks (breathlessness, faint, racing heart, heat waves). I also feel down a lot and have some very bad thoughts which are difficult to manage. I wonder if it is a side effect of the medication (I am on 5mg Zyprexa in the evening and 15mg Abilify in the morning) being too strong? Has anyone else experienced this?
I need to learn to get this under control, very scary.... I want to be able to take care of my little sweetheart again and just can't see the light at the end of the tunnel right now...
