I just had my second baby. I was terrified of the PPD and asked my doctor for a prescription before even leaving the hospital. Luckily, I have not had to touch it so far. This time is so much different from the first, and I don't know why. But I do feel very fortunate that I can enjoy my family so much more this time. Rest assured to all the ladies who are suffering, I would much rather take the drugs than be emotionally and mentally separated from the ones I love. Please get the help and don't suffer like I did the first time.
