How did y’all cope with postpartum depression/baby blues?

I’m 10 weeks postpartum, and I think I’m still struggling with the baby blues. Crying 24/7, feeling lonely all the time. I have a great support system at home, and my husband is INCREDIBLE. I just want to feel normal again.

Zoloft tbh. I’m on a super low dose and I’m certain a lot is placebo (I’m not great at taking it everyday). No side effects for me so I’m pro doing what you need to so you’re 100% for you and your family

I attended a baby blues and better days program.. twice actually. I also went to my doctor with my husband and we told him what had been going on and I was prescribed meds. Meds take awhile to figure though so tale your time and when you need to talk talk! ❤️

I talked to my mom about it. Just talking to her and sharing her experience made me feel normal and that I wasn’t losing my mind

I had the same quite bad crying everyday, could not sleep, my anxiety was through the roof! I personally didn’t want to wait every week to talk to a therapist so I ended up going into the mother and baby unit in Fiona Stanley I was there for 2.5 weeks and it was the best decision I made for me and my bub! The tablets really do help but I’m slowly coming off them and I feel so much better but yes I still have slightly bad days!

PPD kicked my ass for almost 3 months before I went to a therapist. I was crying around the clock and felt like I was taking care of strangers assigned to me. My twin girls are 7 1/2 months now and I only have a bad day every few weeks. My bond with them is amazing now and it didn’t feel like that was possible a few months ago.
