So I am starting to hear back from quite a few agencies and they have all turned me down for the fact that I was on medication for PPD.  I don't agree with this at all; they do not know why I personally had to get on medication for this.

Right after my daughter was born a little over three years ago I was doing great.  My mom was there to help me for about a month; once she left things got very difficult for me.  I was basically a single mother, even though I was married.  My husband at the time was working full time in the National Guard and worked very long and abnormal hours.  He had little do to with helping with our child or house.  At my six week check up with my OBGYN I was doing great it was after that that things were different.  I would say that I was depressed but so, so sleep deprived and with my sweet new born having her nights and days backwards I was a zombie and was still trying to figure out how to handle everything and the new responsibilities of being a mother by myself.  I was only medication for this for a few months and then I weaned myself off since I felt better and even though my husband still wasn't helping much I had a better handle and a routine that worked for miss muffet and I.

Are there any agencies that anyone knows of that will take me and still having used medication to help me feel a little less hormonal?  I wouldn't even say that I was depressed but just overwhelmed with the newness and not getting help.
