Pretty much the last few weeks, my depression and anxiety had been at an all time high. My depression is exasperated by postpartum depression and constantly worrying about my daughter (1 year old) to the point where I have had severe panic attacks. I should mention that I’m not a threat to myself or my daughter, I’ve set up a safety plan just in case I get to a point of needing hospitalization. I just got switched from prozac (stopped cold turkey, not intended) to Zoloft recently so that’s gonna take time to even itself out. I go to the park with my daughter 3-4 times a week. We walk the same amount of times a week. No matter what I do, I can’t seem to feel the positive feelings I get from the park visits outside of that setting. I still have multiple recent traumatic experiences that probably are contributing to my trouble. Any ways, just needed to vent. I am ok. I will be ok. Right now it’s just so hard.

    Im also dealing with severe anxiety and depression. I found myself bacl in my toxic pattern. And i have found i need to learn to let go. I was also given a lot of false hope by my now ex boyfriend. We lost a baby about a month ago. I was 5 months pregnant. I also have bipolar type 1 and while pregnant i rapid cycle severly. So my body is readjusting from being pregnant then not and my brain is recocerong from all the rapid cycling and arguements we had which led tp more manic moments. Im also mentally drained and on edge. You need to take a moment of self care while the baby is napping. Youre favorite way to relax. It helps anxiety so much and from a moms point of view its like a treat. Also try affirmations for when you get too anxious. Remind yourself everything is ok and youre not on danger. I hoe i helped❤️❤️
