I had two episodes of depression/anxiety during my last (third) pregnancy and had to go to my mom's the second time so she could take care of me and my girls. Then, 3 weeks before I gave birth, I had a third onset and now, 6 months after baby's birth, I am still in that same state. I didn't have any issues with the first two pregnancies so I'm not sure what happened this time or if it's even related to my pregnancy. Anyway, I'm still here even though I wouldn't have thought I would have made it this far. God has given me enough grace to get through each day even though it feels like a living hell. I have had GAD for 17 years and was honest with my OBGYN before getting pregnant the first time. His advice was to stay on meds as that would be less dangerous than me having episodes during pregnancy so I did this through all three of my pregnancies but it didn't work this last time. Not sure why. I was scared I wouldn't make it through my pregnancy or that something would be wrong with my son, but he's just fine. I'm scared now that all of this is affecting my children negatively, but they seem to be taking it fine. Currently changing meds, AGAIN, to try to find something that will work as I have never been in this state for this long before. I don't have HA now although I had it when my GAD first started 17 years ago, so that part I can't relate to, but as for living with these tough anxiety disorders and trying to raise a family when it feels like I cannot even get out of bed...that I know all too well. You just get up each day and do what you have to do and trust that it will get better with time because we all know that eventually it will let up. These things are cyclical and the hormones of pregnancy tend to exacerbate them. Hang in there...you are going to do great and those babies will be just fine!
