Are they still giving you heartburn? Could you get prescribed something else?

Does this ever get better, I'm so tired of fighting this depression. I have a run of good days then suddenly I'm back where I started.

I feel like I'm cheating Kate of the happy mum she deserves.

Thanks guys. I have a history of mental headcase crap, and then had a very traumatic birth and have been diagnosed with ptsd and pnd, i just had a sych person from plunket here just now she just left. i had to do an assessment and she said i have the highest score of anyone she has diagnosed I feel so terrible i just want to enjoy my little girl. i love her to pieces, i just can't feel happy, i really thought i would feel much better when she was born, but instead the anxiety and panic attacks increased and now i have sunken into a deep depression where i cant eat, sleep, go out, i cry, I even have moments i hate the doctor at the hospital because i had a 2 and a half litre bleed with is very dangerous and he saved my life, so sometimes i hate him for stopping the bleed. At the same time I love Ella to pieces i make sure she is looked after and everything is done for her, even if i am crying when i do it.

I didn't have to go and seek help. i didn't want it, i wouldn't admit it. it was because my midwife picked up on it as i was having panic attacks and visions from the birth and then it escalated into this and she got a sych team in and referred me to 2 different sych places, i didnt want any of this but now i have to admit that yes i do have an illness and i'm not well, as i used to deny any thing i felt but now that its got so bad i have to seek help as i need to be strong for my daughter.

I was on fluoxitine 20mg since i was 18 before i was pregnant, which didn't help at all whatsoever, it's like the base antidepressant they will start people on for mild depression, it was weak and hopeless i may as well been taking sugar pills. I'm now on citalopram and quetiapine- the quetiapine i just take when i need it if I have an anxiety/panic attack.
