I begged to get in and I am glad I did. THey wanted me to wait until 2 months. I threatened to harm myself. Not bright, but it got me in the next morning on a Saturday. I was medicated with my paxil for OCD right away and started my thyroid meds the next. Within a week I felt human again.

This time I went on Paxil right after I had the baby to stop the OCD from driving us all batty - LOL! I was already on thyroid meds with blood draws every 4 weeks all pregnancy. It has been adjusted a few time while PP. I have not felt like crap this time, which is perfect.
It took my mid wife to go hmmm after having a 7 day AF every other week for 2 months. Talk about making my iron not good.
