New Momma Blues
My name is Carmen and I was diagnosed with PPCM in October 2015. My EF at that time was 50 %. I was re-evaluated in February 2016 and EF was then 47%. After trial and errors with various medications, I stuck with Losartan 25 MG. My EF recently became 55-59%. I am hopeful and looking forward to living my life again. I feel stagnant. Some days are good, but others are not. I try to go for light walks and become winded and exhausted.
I was also diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease of the thyroid, but do not require treatment at this time.
I have developed awful anxiety from the PPCM. Doctors would like to treat the symptoms, but I am concerned to take medication for anxiety, as well as for PPCM. I do not know much about dual medication.
I feel guilty because I have a beautiful 5 month old daughter who is close to perfection in my eyes. I can't help but feel like I am disappointing her. Like she deserves a momma who is healthy and has more energy than I do. It's a process, I suppose.
I also would like to try and have another baby, but that remains to be seen at this time.
I am grateful to this wesbite for its comforting information and hope to connect with other heartsisters.
