So after I had my second son ten months ago I got really sick. Sinus infection, Kidney infection, mastitus and just in a really stressful time. I got really depressed and anxious. Diagnosed with post partum depression, went on zoloft. I've been so healthy otherwise before and never experienced anything like this. Just weaned off zoloft a month ago. As far as the depression goes, I am doing alright. However the "nagging anxiety" has not really gone away.One top of this....and this is my main question is that I have experienced EYE FLOATERS ever since a couple months post partum. They are SOOOOOO annoying and adding to my anxiety. I love to run and be outside and these things frustrate me.
I know I need to just accept them and "ignore them" as doctors don't give a crap about them. I've researched the heck out of them. Tried vitamins, herbs, eating super healthy, exercising etc. I am getting rhinoplasty done in a week to fixed a svere deviated septum. I'm hoping that will help clear up the sinus issues I've been having. I've felt like fluid in my ears for the past few months and blowing clear fluid out of my nose for a while. I've also read the Candida and eye floaters/anxiety might be connected? I've tried anti candida diets, anti fungals too...
I just don't feel right. I so desperately want to feel like myself again. Is this just going to take more time? Is this still Post partum depression not going away? Anyone experience vision issues post natal? I try to take one day at a time I want to be a good mother to my sons, but I just feel awful..still, ten months later.
Any advice?? Help??
For my anxiety, I'm seeing a counselor via Employee Assistance Program for free. And I believe in the power of prayer, so I try to pray and ask for help managing the existing anxiety and help discerning what I should worry about from what I shouldn't. I also try to do "reality checks" with my husband (who doesn't have intense anxiety) to see what he thinks should be a legitimate concern and what I should try to let go.
I just started counseling a few weeks ago, so I'll post more if I get good advice/techniques from her. It's good that you're reaching out though! You can get through this, and it will get better!!
