Phone call

So, my midwife called me back and she said my grumpiness isn't related to postpartum. I'm not sure where to go or what to do now. I might call my neurologist. The grumpiness I felt today was so intense. I hate that I feel this way and I can't even control it. It's just so hard to explain.

I have no idea how your midwife through a phone conversation can diagnose you with or without depression or an anxiety issues. Please call your neurologist ASAP. Rebif can and does cause depression and it can cause deep depression.

I know, I was one of those people. I have always dealt with depression and Rebif made it much worse. It is a side effect clearly listed with all the paperwork that comes with your box.

I haven't read any of the other comments on your previous threads because I'm basically out of touch with most blogs during the week.

Please call someone and ask to be seen or explain this clearly to your neurologist. Could you also bundle up your baby and put Asa in a stroller and go walking? That might help, too. There are also some exercise DVDs called Walk away the Pounds which you can do while the baby is sleeping right in the living room.

They have one-milers up to 5-milers and some have walk and jog and walk and kick. Check them out on if you'd like.

I hope you also feel better soon!

Hugs, J

I thought I'd just leave a comment to say that the reason I am on Copaxone and not any of the Beta Interferons is because the latter can sometimes cause depression and even suicidal thoughts and I am already on antidepressants. You mentioned wondering if it might be the Rebif (if I remember correctly) and I wonder the same thing - a chat with your neuro or MS nurse might be a good idea.
