I thought I was going crazy! went out and bought the Linden Method, its a anxiety program that will help with lots of issues, its been great, but still was feeling anxiety ridden, and upset and full of fear :( I couldn't figure out what the heck was wrong with me... was ready to go to the doctor and tell him to just commit me :( then thinking back to when my eldest daughter was a baby I started to reconize a pattern, at about 4 months postpartum with her I remember going through a horrible time, the same feelings and thoughts... I don't know why I didn't reconize this for what it really is? I am suffering from Postpartum Depression! its a horrible thing, thank GOD that I now realize what is going on... I choose NOT to be on pills... not that I think its a bad thing when women take them its just not for me! feeling good now that I know whats going on... feel more at peace... I think I didn't reconize the signs because it started so late and I was sooooo happy to have this little beautiful angel for the first 4 months! I think that the doctors should be telling Moms that you can develop Postpartum for the first YEAR of your babies life, and that you are not going crazy, and your not going to hurt your babies, its just something that us as women have to deal with! (like we needed something else to deal with) I don't really know why I'm posting about this... I just think that maybe someone else is in the same postion as me and maybe this will get them thinking and after all more information about this topic the better right moms?
