I've only just started taking Citalopram today. After having my second baby a couple of months ago, I began to feel really down all the time. I feel empty, cold and sad. I am not eating properly (binging on rubbish even when im not hungry) and am tired all the time. When im not crying im laughing hysterically about nothing in particular. Some days I wake up and just want to walk out the door and never come back, then I feel guilty because I have a lovely husband and two gorgeous kids and I can't understand feeling like this.
So I saw my doc today and he's started me on 20mg Citalopram. He said i'll be on it for at least a yr and not to worry as it is a chemical imbalance in my brain and a real illness.
I just keep thinking im a bad mum for feeling like this and that I should be able to cope better.
