Im sorry if this is not in the right place. This is my first post. I have been diagnosed with major PPD. I had a full break down 6mths ago and was not treated properly by my doctor. After 6mths of feeling like i couldn't keep going. Crying every day and wanting to die i was guided to a psychiatrist that diagnosed PPD. That was 10 days ago. She has put me on Lexapro 10mg. I am still feeling so sad and down and crying all day long. I am feeling so alone like no one else has PPD as bad as me? Thats probably not true but its how i feel. I really need some hope from anyone who has recovered or is recovering? Has anyone felt like they would be better or dead, crying daily, miserable and seeing no joy in life and made it out the other side????? Is a week on Lexapro to soon to expect to see any improvement? Im sorry my post is so miserable.
