Hi everyone :)
Great community here, I love the info and support this forum seems to have :)
I was diagnosed with PPD a couple of months ago. My doc put me on wellbutrin & another pill that I can never remember the name of (Mithra-something.... too lazy to go check the bottle lol..). Anyway, the meds seemed to be helping me at first. Then I had to go back to work and it seems my PPD may have taken a toll for the worse.
Has anybody else experience this?
In addition to separating from the little one, my work is crazy and very stressful, and now I feel like I've been backsliding as far as my PPD is concerned. I feel hopelessly depressed and I just want to walk in and quit my job, I feel so miserable and I see no way out of this, I feel trapped.
I'm wondering if I should call the doc and have him up my dosage as far as the meds are concerned? Or is this something that'll pass & things will one day look brighter?
I'm just seeing if anybody else has had this experience after going back to work & how they coped. I've been discussing possibly working from home with my boss, but I was only met with "sounds reasonable, but I can't promise anything". Also, despite promises of "easing me back into things" .... well... I'm up to my eyeballs already, so that obviously didn't work as planned.
