Hi Everyone! I am 40. At 19 I experienced my first severe episode of depression with OCD. I got better not really knowing what I had gone through or was I was continuing to suffer from at a much milder level. 10 years later, I suffered sever PPD/OCD with my second child. With the horrible frightening thoughts and depression (and with the advancement of the internet) I was able to figure out what I had been suffering from all of those years and why they became so horrifically worse after child #2. Since then, on and off, I have had some bad times but I have a great doctor and so those times thankfully have been small. I recently have been struggling with anxiety and mostly at night so I haven't been sleeping at all. Started Seroquel last night and now i am angry and depressed and tired. I know what it means to feel better so i am holding on to that for now. Trying to give the meds time to work. :cry:

Hi. It can help with the anxiety if you put an ice cube in your hand. Squeeze it as tight as you can. Concentrate on how it feels; the shapes it takes as it melts. It really helps to get thru an attack. I'm glad you have such a wonderful doctor helping you. I look forward to hearing more from you.
