I have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder since I was 19. I just had a thought though and I wanted some opinions on it. I know that after my first son, I went through a small period of postpartum depression. After my second son, I became obsessed with my weight, dieting,and work. I started going out to bars and became a completely different person and did things that I would never have done before. When I got pregnant with my last son, I started off stressed out and scared. I had just gotten divorced and this baby was with my new boyfriend who I had only been with for a short while. And I know that to some degree I was depressed because I knew that my dad would never see this baby like he had the rest. My dad died of cancer in October of 2005. I got pregnant in February of 2006. In the beginning of the pregnancy, my anxiety wasn't that bad. I was just mildly depressed, but I didn't have many attacks or symptoms. As the pregnancy progressed, I became the person that I am now. I have at least a few attacks per day and when I'm calm, all I have to do is think back to how I felt, or question whether or not i'm gonna get nauseated, and then I go into full blown panick mode. Could I be suffering from postpartum depression. I realize now, that after each of my kids, I went through some sort of mess. My youngest son just made 3 months old. Give me some opinions or advice please. Thank you all for taking the time to read this.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
