Re: Anxiety Disorder
Hi. I hate to see your post go unanswered so I thought I'd at least try to reply. While I don't have experience with PD personally my husband has suffered with it severly since he was 20...he is now 34. So I do understand what you are going through and how it must be to not feel safe in taking your meds. As I said, I do not take the meds you are taking but I do have to take medication that according to my GP and OB are safe for pregnancy but according to the Pharmacist, he wouldn't advise it as it is a class C drug, meaning effects are unknown. I have myself chosen to take it during both pregnancies now. It is to slow my heart down and the way I see it, it's better for my heart to be working properly then not while pregnant. It's hard and scary to think it might be the wrong choice but I just trusted my own insticts. Are your fears centered around the medication causing problems, or just the actual idea of the baby arriving and not knowing how you will handle it along with your PD? I hope someone else here is kind enough to help as it seems you are really frustrated and in need of some kind words. I understand where you are coming from about the counseling as well. It never has worked for my DH. It's easier for people to say talk it out and deal with it when they've never experienced it before so don't feel about that. Counseling doesn't work for every problem. Well, I don't know what else to say except that I hope all goes well and that you can find some peace and know that you and baby will be alright. Good luck!
