    • I’m sorry CB13. It might be possible that you have a postpartum mental disorder along with over-active thyroid. It’s important that you treat both conditions. Can you talk with your doctor about your ongoing symptoms? You may also want to consider seeing a psychiatrist that has more expertise in helping women with PPD and related illnesses. I hope you can find the help you need.
