Make some! It’s delicious…

Postpartum Depression to Joy (and me, Yael Saar, the girl writing when my kids are at school or asleep) love to hear from you.

Post comments! Right on the bottom of this page, and on any other page on this website. That will get my attention, and make me happy, and get you a reply to your comment here on the blog, for all to see.

email me: ppdtojoy(at)gmail(dot)com I check email at least once a day, but my life, like yours, is hectic and unpredictable. I may not get back to you right away. If you are in crisis, please don’t rely on my support alone. When you are hurting, you deserve all the support in the world, and I am simply not able to provide the right listening space at a moment’s notice. Thankfully, the good people at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255), are waiting to talk to people in pain ALL the time. Please do not hesitate to call them, they are amazing. And please don’t wait until you are suicidal to call either, they will support anyone who needs to talk. Also, call the Postpartum Support International warm-line: 1-800-944-4PPD(4773) and a trained PPD volunteer will call you back within 24 hours.

“Like” me: I LOVE Facebook. When you “like” the PPD to Joy Facebook page you get special Facebook updates, so go ahead, click that button. And please feel free to post on my wall. I love to read your voice.

Twitter: I am in the process of getting over my Twitterphobia. It is a nice exercise in stepping outside my comfort zone. Totally not intuitive for me, that system, and I just don’t get quite why I find it so hard. Some things are HARD, even when others find them easy. And not getting it doesn’t make me stupid, either. The me of five years ago, she would so totally see this as a failure, proof of long-suspected inferiority. The now me? She is just figuring all of this out, and learning about herself in the process. So, want to help me get comfortable in that realm? ( Realm? Twitter is a realm now? It is if I say it is!)
I am @yaelsaar, and yes , I’ll follow you too.

Send a thing like a letter, or a package, or something one could hold with their hands, something that will exist even in a power outage, something made out of atoms and molecules, not ones and zeros. Wow, what a concept!

    Currently it sounds like WordPress is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your
    blog?

    Hi Yael,

    Thanks for this great site! PPD is real and more mamas need to know to be aware. I just found this page as I just had our 2nd. I haven’t had severe PPD, but in looking around trying to be prepared (had baby blues the first time), I also did an interview with one of the nation’s leading PPD experts. I wanted to share it with your community in hopes it might help them. You can find it right here (might need to scroll down): http://yourbabybooty.com/category/interviews/ I hope it helps & thank you again!

    My name is Kim and i live in Australia. I have 2 children. A daughter 3 and a son almost 2. I have recently been diagnosed with postnatal depression. I have been suffering for such a long time and i feel like i will never ever recover. I guess i must have had mild postnatal depression after my son was born and that it gradually got worse and worse and went undiagnosed or treated. It wasn’t till October last year that i went into full break down. My period returned and a week later i was suffering palpitations, hot flashes, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and then major depression that hit so hard it was like a switch went off in my brain. After months of searching for answers as to what was wrong and being put on medication that did not do anything finally (6mths on) crying every single day and feeling like i wanted to die, someone told me to contact a psychiatrist who diagnosed postnatal depression that went unchecked and turned into major depression. That was 6 weeks ago. I cry daily and feel hopeless about the future. I wake up sad and i can’t turn it off. My new doctor took me off the medication that were doing nothing and put me on lexapro 6 weeks ago. I have felt some what improved compared to the last 6mths but today i am crying again and feeling hopeless. i didn’t ever feel the disconnection to my son. Just the extreme black depression and anxiety that came outs of nowhere. Will i ever get well? Or will i be this miserable lifeless person forever? I love my children so much and i love being their mum so i just don’t understand why i am so sad and miserable. What is causing this? I have absolutely no reason to feel so depressed and anxious yet i can’t make it go away. How long did it take your right medication to work? Will i ever recover because it was not diagnosed for almost 2 years? Has the damage been done?
    Please can you help me?
