Mental Health Update – A Few Months into Being on Antidepressants

I’ve now been on the antidepressant fluoxetine for over two months, and I thought I’d ramble away for a little bit about how I’ve been doing since starting back on antidepressants. Mental Health Update: A Few Months into Being on Antidepressants This isn’t my first time around on antidepressants. I could bore you with my 3 year history of being on and off with taking antidepressants – and truth be told I’ve just deleted 400 words that may as well be titled “The History of Ross and Antidepressants” – but I want to keep this about what’s going on now.…

Going Back on Antidepressants After a Few Weeks of Poor Mental Health

For the last few weeks I think it’s safe to say that I’ve struggled quite a bit with my mental health. I tried to muddle my way through it like I usually do, but by Sunday night I knew I had to sort myself out before it got any worse. I quickly made an appointment with the doctor and by Monday night I had taken my first antidepressant since Isabelle was roughly 6 weeks old.

So I thought I’d collect my thoughts on this issue and talk about why I think men can suffer from PND, and why others would say that…

My Husband Had Postnatal Depression – But His Battle Affected Me Too

My husband cried the day we found out I was pregnant. For almost our entire relationship being a father was something he wanted to be. But when our little girl was finally born, things weren’t right. I never put much thought into the idea of him suffering with postnatal depression, but all of a sudden, that’s exactly what he was going through. I know he’s talked about his struggles a lot on this blog. But the unspoken side of mental health is often the affects it has on the people around the sufferer. So this is my story of having…

Dad Diaries #4 – Trending Towards Somewhere Positive

If you read last weeks Dad Diaries then you might know I wasn’t feeling the best. I was basically on and off with my depression and put some of it down to letting the blog take over my life a little. Well this week I’ve been a bit better. I haven’t been absorbing myself quite as much in the blog and I’m more than happy to just see it as a part time hobby for the time being. As of this writing, I feel like I’m at least trending towards somewhere positive. I’m still a little bit up and down…
