Postpartum depression/anxiety

I have an 8 month old daughter and last weekend I had a major panic attack and dibilitating anxiety. I literally thought I was losing my mind. I went to the doctor and she told me it was more than likely postpartum depression but I have more of the anxiety symptoms. I was put on klonopin and 10mg of Celexa. I feel better but still not myself. It has just been a struggle trying to take care of her and deal with this. Is anyone else going through this or has been through it. I just want to feel like myself again.

Thanks!

Not to worry i went through this with my 1st child just take it easy if you have a support group make sure you also let them know communication is key! Mainly if you cant deal with the baby its not bad i did not want to be around anyone i would always cry for no reason i think best what worked with me was having an understanding support group hope this helps. Good Luck:)
