I’m just reaching out for some reassurance/ comfort?
I had PPP in September 2016 2 weeks after the birth of my daughter. I was sectioned and fortunately recovery was relatively straightforward and I was discharged after 2 weeks.
Unfortunately I entered a deep depression and was readmitted to a mother and baby unit in February 2017 for 7 weeks.
Following discharge I was taking sertraline 125mg and quatiapine 500mg.
Over time this was gradually reduced and having been well for nearly 12 months I stopped my sertaline and was still taking 150mg of quatiapine.
Everything was going well but I had a relapse and the depression symptoms returned in March 2018. I’m now off work and battling a deep depression again! I’m back taking 125mg of sertaline and still taking 150mg of quitapine im just hoping I feel better soon. I’m not able to look after my daughter at the moment but my family are being supportive.
Just looking for reassurance and tips to help me get over this next challenge.
Thank you all.
