I really have nothing to say... Just pray that i don't spaz out at work again today because i'm already feeling stressed and sad before i even walk through the door..

I'm thinking about finding a psychiatrist and seeing if that will help me out at all, but i don't even know if i can afford to pay them. Anti-depressants would be nice though... Are they safe for pregnant women to take?

I'm sorry about all this negativity, loves... I really will try to improve my mood--and my posts--soon. But right now, i just don't have the energy to try all of that. I still love you all and all of your comments though. Help me through this like you always have! ...i need you.


  1. I would imagine there are some antidepressants that are safe for pregnant women to take, but I know some aren't just because of those "if you or a loved one took _________ during pregnancy and had a child born with this disease or that disease etc call this law firm financial compensation may be available" commercials. A doctor would probably know.

  2. Antidepressants are not usually safe for pregnant women so you might want to consider an alternative lovie. <3 I hope everything gets better we all love you and we'll all be here for you no matter what!!!! Hang in there!!

  3. I'm sorry you're in such a rough patch. I don't think you can take many anti-depressants while pregnant, but there's probably more natural things you could try. Like herbal supplements or something. And a therapist might really help, just to have someone to talk to.

    Hope you have better days ahead! xoxo

  4. there are NO safe antidepressants during pregnancy, pls dont take any you would never forgive yourself if the baby got hurt! but you are such a great person, such a fighter and you have mastered a lot, and you will get through this as well. fingers xd for the therapist.
    lots of love

  5. No, antidepressants are NOT safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women! Listen to your cravings, get plenty of rest and only release the rage on deserving targets.


  6. I think what you really need is a place for you and your family... I know you're trying hard Jo, and I'm sure eventually you will manage to make things better.
    If the weather is good enough, try to spend more time outdoors, being in the sun is the best natural antidepressant (it's scientifically proved), maybe try taking walks in some local park with Jesse?

    Lots of love to the three of you


  7. awe, keep in mind that being pregnant, you may just be emotional. Once your baby is born and hormone levels go back to normal, you may be fine girl!

  8. (I tell people I'm friends with Eddie, rather than Ana. That's my name for it, LOL!)

    Good luck, baby. You'll pull through this.

  9. I know this has already been said, but no, most antidepressants are not at all safe for pregnant women. Most medicines are potentially harmful, even ibuprofen (advil, tylonal, etc.). So the best thing to do is to avoid sickness, and that means you won't have to risk any medicines causing complications--please get lots of vitamin C and calcium, especially in this season where everyone is likely to get sick! I know you can't really 'prevent' depression, and I think a therapist is a good idea if you think you need to go, just be wary of anything someone tries to prescribe you (though only a psychiatrist should do that, not a psychologist) though since they're professionals I guess they'd know not to give you anything dangerous for a pregnant person :) Just be careful!

    Yeah, there's my lecture....

    I love reading, and I am praying for you, okay? Good luck with all the baby stuff.


    PS: have you told your parents about this? I'm just wondering, because I know you're not on great terms with them but you haven't mentioned them lately, so I thought maybe things were better-ish. I don't know. I hope that's not an inappropriate/too-personal question.

  10. Honestly, I think only a sane person would unleash the rage at an uncaring customer. I know. I worked a horrible job, with the most vile people in my city shopped at AKA Whole Foods. You have a soul and it wants to do the things that it was put here to do. Wow...thats a lot coming from an atheist. lol.

    Talking to someone, though, isn't a bad idea regardless.

    Peace, Strength, & Beauty
