I need some help. Do you guys think i could be suffering from postpartum? My baby is now 9mos old and I came back to work when he was 10weeks old full time. I believe I was depressed when he was first born but in April I started a workout program that has really improved my outlook in the future. I'm pretty happy EXCEPT with the fact that I miss him while in working 40hrs a week. I feel like I'm missing him growing up and missing out on his firsts. The few hours we have every night before bedtime is rushed and routine. It's not enough time and it's made me cry more than I ever have and miss time at work because I just can't leave him. Should I talk to my dr? I was ready to go to part time at work but now they want me to talk to my dr and see if maybe I need short term instead. Help?

i would say definitely if you have a concern, bring it up to your dr, it never hurts to ask! i started back to work when DD was about 9 weeks old, and while im fortunate to have a job and position where i can work from home, I feel like alot of times i miss some things that she does, so i can see how you being away would feel like you are missing everything! definitely talk to your dr, thats what they are there for, and maybe see if it is something that might be covered under FMLA (if you are in the US, i didnt look to see... )

I'm feeling pretty hopeless. I have postpartum depression. I was an inpatient in a psychiatric ward for 3 days a couple of weeks ago. I already have depression, so I've already been on meds, but they added some to my regime, plus an anti anxiety that kind of works.

For awhile I felt much better, but the past few days have gotten bad again. I just sat and cried for no reason. I am alone with the baby and I feel like I can't be; it makes me so anxious I can hardly stand it. I was crying feeding her earlier. Now she won't sleep on her back and will only sleep on her tummy, which is so stressful because I don't want to put her on her tummy all night. I can't even sleep when she sleeps because I start panicking the second my eyes close. I feel like a terrible mom. I don't know what to do...I am at my wits end. :/

Bubbles, just wanted to give you a hug;-). Pp depression is so unfair and hard to cope with. If you are feeling bad again is it worth discussing meds change with your doctor or some talking therapy? I suffer with anxiety too so I understand how scary it can be. Sorry I can't be more helpful xx

Hi ladies I have a question for those taking antidepressants ie Zoloft. I've started on 25mg last week then increased to 50mg. I am basically on day 11 right now and have started jaw clenching at night and sometimes during the day. It's so weird I wasn't a jaw clencher before. My mom is also on Zoloft and some other meds as well but she said that she's been clenching her jaw for years and years and the medication she's on improved it.

I'm thinking maybe I should go speak to my dr? Is it too early to even exhibit symptoms from taking Zoloft?

I'm on citralopram and as soon asi started taking it I got a jaw tremor that does not go away so not too soon for it to be causing you problems. I hoped mine was just a short term side effect bit it seems to be here stay

thank you for sharing, I'm sorry about your jaw tremor.

I've already made another appointment to discuss the teeth grinding. I'm going to see if I could be put on something else or maybe see if I can get by with just counseling.
