    PERMANENT anxiety after post-partum depression

    Hello all. I'm a 40 year-old mom of one. 14 years ago, after the birth of my only son, I experienced severe post-partum depression and anxiety. With medication I did come through the very worst and darkest part of the depression. However, all these years later, I still struggle with significant and chronic anxiety. I never experienced these kinds of feelings as a young woman before I gave birth and now it seems like I'll never be free from them. I've been on and off various medications over the years and even had a period of about 3-4 years in the middle where I was virtually anxiety free with no meds at all. It's been back for the last several years, though. Not to the degree it was in the beginning, but it still affects my life quite deeply. Has anyone heard of PPD leading to long-term or even lifelong anxiety and depression issues? I'm currently not on any meds and would like to stay that way.
