anyone familiar with postpartum depression / anxiety
hi - i had my third baby 3 1/2 months ago. which each of my three pregnancies i have had increasing problems with a panicy fear of not being able to make it to a restroom in time. i know physically things change after having 3 kids but is it possible that this is more of a mental rather than a physical problem? it seems to be getting worse. i wouldn't say i'm incontinent - i've never had an accident but i get soooo incredibly worked up if i don't know where a bathroom is in a restaurant or if i'm traveling in the car for a little while, etc etc. i wrote in on the "panic boards" and someone suggested this may be a form of post partum depression - that it exhibits itself in many ways. i don't think i've been depressed since i had this baby - tho i must admit to occasionally getting very angry = but i just figured lack of sleep would do that to a mom of 3!! i haven't discussed it with the ob cause i figure they will tell me to just start doing kegels and blah blah.... - i see them the end of december anyway. but help - i need advice cause i'm about to throw on some depends to ease my mind when i go places and i'm only 31!!!
