Health knowledge made personal
I'm a 31 year old first-time mother of a beautiful 9 month old baby girl. As a young adult I experienced a panic attack which as one could imagine was very frightening. I was prescribed Cymbalta which I took up until my husband and I decided we wanted to try and get pregnant. My baby was three months old when I had another panic attack and had to go back on Cymbalta. I took it hard at first because I felt like I was incapable of being a good parent. What I've come to realize is that my anxiety doesn't define who I am. But it can if you let it. I started my blog to reach out to other anxious mothers who may be going through the same thing. You are not alone and it's okay to share your story. I'd like to share mine with you.
