Hi all! I just wanted to join in here a little late. I have suffered from depression, OCD, and SAD since I was young. I went off my zoloft when dd#2 was born (I was only on it for 2 months or so) and really have done fine until recently. I am so stressed out that the past few months, I have been worse than usual. I have no energy, I plan all these fun things to do with the kids, but instead they drive me nuts and I find myself yelling and camping on the couch with the computer for hours just trying to get away. Add on finances, and I don't sleep much.
One of the reasons that I went off my zoloft is the stigma by my dh (I'm crazy) and the fact that I became worried about using it while bf after some research. Well, dd is 20 months now, and she certainly will NOT stop bf now, the little fiend, so I was looking at herbs, but those don't look much better! I think that I may ask about it at a future doc appt, but do you think that nursing school or jobs will look down on it?
