sassy2684 Since giving birth to my third daughter in November I no longer feel like myself. I have been diagnosed with post partum depression and panic attacks. My thoughts get the best of me and I can't cope any longer. I am married but he doesn't understand what I go through on a daily basis. I'm scared to think :-'(

Scary Day :(

Jan 25 2012
Today was a horrible day for me :( I literally feel like my panic attack has been here since this morning when I woke up. On top of that I have cried non stop over literally everything. I should be happybut feel as my mind wont let me be happy. I really just want these panic attacks to go away permanently. I have been prescribed Zoloft and once again have yet to take them due to fear. Why I fear them, the side effects maybe, but then again I know that it is all in my head when it comes to it. I have yet to talk to my doctor because I know he will say take the pills to make yourself better. Which truthfully I need to!! Yet here I sit in bed in full panic mode, nauseas, chest tight, shortness of breath, feeling like I am about to die,  and will not take the pill. I feel like a failure and that I am bringing down my family because of this. I really do want to get better and know that the pills are the best route right now but at the same time I am scared to take them.

Sassy...i too am always afraid to take any new mere. I too have suffered from post partum and it is hell i say!! I am on zoloft myself and i encourage u to try it. It will take about 3 weeks to really know if it is helping but i will tell you that the only side effect that i had was being tired at first. It took a couple of weeks to adjust to that but that was nothing compared to how much it has helped me. Don't worry, i too have to get the guts up to take a new med! It usually takes me 1-2 weeks just sitting there staring at them before i get the guts to take them. Know you are not alone.
