Hi there I am 36 yrs old and have two beautiful boys aged 8 and 9 months. I went off meds to have my 9 month old. I feel aweful everyday. I am up for two days and then down for a couple then normal moods etc. I feel dizzy with anxiety going to the local shops for a simple trip. I can barely cope with the baby, house work and cooking. I just manage to have a shower, don't brush my hair or wear make up at times as I simply cannot manage. My partner whose father is a Doctor says not to go back onto the meds as they are not good for my health and he can deal with the ups and downs. I'm drawn to the meds so I am a better mother and partner. Not sure what to do he does have a point ?
