My name is Brandy and I have an 8yr old son. I had been struggling with PPS/PPD since 2003. I had thoughts of hurting my son, thoughts of suicide, seeing things that weren't there and being afraid of paranormal things. I was very sick and finally saw a psychiatrist. I was put in a mental hospital about 14 times between 2003 and 2006. Dr tried so many medications. I was a vegetable i was on so many medications. the drs thought i would't get better. Dr. perscribed electro convulsive therapy. I had that about 33 times. still not getting better. I finally found a dr that took me off of all those medications and tried Abilify. It's a little hard for me to remember all of the meds i was on. After Abilify, dr put me on a high dose of clozaril and effexor. now, I am starting school in the fall, I have joint custody of my son. I am on a low dose of clozaril and effexor. My mind is back and sharp as a tack. I can also thank my family for all the support they had given. Never give up and there is light at the end of the tunnel. If anyone needs someone to listen to let me know. I would be happy to.
