I know that there are a few of us going through pregnancy at the moment with depression/anxiety and I often wonder about how we are all doing!!
My update: I started on the cipramil nearly 3 weeks ago and it has made some differences - although we are hanging out till 4-8 weeks to see the full effects!! I am much more balanced now (DH says he loves it as he isn't always wondering what 'mood' he will face when he gets home from work!!!) and am feeling just all round happier and content with my lot in life. As for the anxiety, well so far it hasn't made a huge difference (hoping that when combined with the CBT and counselling I will start making some progress) but I did manage to go out with DH and Em for dinner on Friday night without panicing and making myself sick (it was the first time we have been out to dinner for well over a year!) so that was nice, especially for DH I am also finding it easier to make decisions, it was quite easy for me to decide that it was time to finish work and nurture myself, so I finished up last Wednesday and will now be off until bubs arrives (Em is staying in daycare 3 days a week too so I will have plenty of opportunity to relax and unwind!)
I start a 6-week CBT cours at the hospital next week, it will run 2 days a week and cover therapy, coping mechanisms and also a PPP Parenting course so I am really looking forward to that!
All in all, things are really good here
How is everybody else???
