I'm considering asking my doctor about going on an antidepressant, but I'm not sure. I was wondering if anyone with similar symtoms has used meds and if they have helped. I have had a lot of trouble with motivation. What I mean is that when I get home, I don't want to do anything and really struggle just to do a sink of dishes. All I want to do is veg-out or play with my little girl. This has been going on for about a month now, and I have been fighting depression off and on, but it hasn't been too bad. In fact I hadn't even considered the fact that I might need some help to get out of this slump until today. I was talking with a fellow social worker about some of my recent issues, and she suggested I talk to my doctor and maybe try some meds. What do you all think? I haven't been angry or violent. I don't think that I have even been difficult to live with. For the most part I have just been ... blah. I have a baby that is 5 months old, and DH suggested that maybe it is PP Depression, but I don't think that you can get PP depression when they are this old. I don't know. Anyway, let me know what you guys think.
