Anyone else diagnosed with PPDA?

I think a support group would be great on here. I feel so alone in this but I know there are others out there who have gone through/are going through the same thing.

I went through it with all three of my children. It's one of the hardest things ever. But doing much better now with help from a great doctor.
If you need a friend, feel free to pm me.

I did not have PPD, which we were shocked about haha. My anxiety, however, absolutely skyrocketed after my son was born. I am hesitant to call it PPA though, since I had anxiety before my son; it just got infinitely worse after having a baby and breastfeeding for almost a year. I'd still definitely like to see a support group for parents with anxiety/depression, though. :)

I was diagnosed with PPD and PPOCD. I felt really terrible for awhile, but things improved with therapy and meds for a little while. I have dealt with a lot of emotional issues throughout my life, but that was really the hardest one because, even today, I feel like the first year of my daughter's life I was not totally present and able to appreciate her as a baby. I'm definitely here for anyone that needs to talk or vent!
