PPD OCD

Fernbrook - November 3

I have awful PPD OCD--intrusive thoughts that won't go away. Sometimes I think that the thoughts I have are a vision of who I really am and that the last 26 years of my life have been a lie. My daughter is 8mth old, I love her to death, but somehow can't shake my fears and thoughts. I have a psych, take meds and I am still not well. I feel like I will never be the same happy person I was. I have read books on PPD, and they help temporarilty. Anyone else in the same boat?

If you are still feeling this way, you need more help. You should see a therapist that specializes in PPD. If your current meds are not working, you should change them. Not all meds work for everyone. I needed to switch twice until I found the right fit for me. Exercise can also really help tremendously for your mood. Even just 10 minutes. There is a PPD warmline to call for help too. You are never alone! (877) PPD-HOPE I can help with any workout suggestions too. I'm a fitness coach and I suffered PPD with both my kids. Here's to good health!
