Baby then crazy
Hi Wray, I wrote in February 2011 about my trouble after baby. 18 months after baby I lost it. Full blown panic, fatigue, depression, frustration, hair loss. The whole lot. I have been slowly battling my way back with acupuncture and naturapathic doctor guidance.
I tried anti-depressants in the beginning but spiraled downward. I now understand that my liver couldn't handle the anti-depressants and I had a reaction to the ssri's. I was totally committed to acupuncture and chinese medicine, but got panic attacks when I try anything. I began progesterone but got wicked headaches so I quickly gave up. I tried another progesterone cream and have been using it monthly for the past few months. I have also began taking ic3 in order to bring my estrodial levels down. But I still freak out whenever I try anything new. I can only take a bit of ic3 it amps me up and makes me super angry, panicky but I am trying to make it work and get my estrogen levels down and my progesterone levels back up. I am also taking astragulus to improve my wellbeing. Free and easy wanderer and serenagen help me when I am super panicky. I am concerned that the chinese herbs (astragulus and free and easy wanderer) add to my estrogen because of plant estrogens.
Anyways can you please help me? I think I am on the right path but need to be sure. What should I be doing? Thanks.
