I developed dpdr during the 6th month of my pregnancy and have had it from varying degrees (awful could not leave the house) to better but not cured (am working as a teacher, have a great relationship with my husband and try my best to take care of my baby daughter). I had to be hospitalized when my daughter was 5 weeks old and have been diagnosed with everything from psychotic depression, to anxiety to bipolar disorder. Not until I started seeing Dr. Daphne Simeon was I properly diagnosed with dpdr.

My daughter is now 11months old and we take things day by day - there are good days and not so great days. The good days I feel about 85% back to myself and the bad days I'm around 65%.

I just wanted to know if there are any moms or dads with young children on here and how you cope.

Thanks!

Hi there,

I'm not sure about any currently active members, but there have certainly been new moms who have posted here talking about dissociation during and after having a baby, so you're not alone in feeling this way.
