Default Waking up in a panic/anxiety/terrifying thoughts?

I am a 33 year old female, married with a 9 month old baby. I have suffered from pretty severe depression all my life and had a particular bad bout in the last few months with PND.

Anyway, I have managed to get my mood through the day in control, its not perfect but ok, using vitamins and so on.

However, I wake every morning early with my heart beating fast, can't breathe, having the worst suicidal thoughts going through my mind. I picture a future in which everything is bad, the worst things happen and I just want out. I feel so sad and I can't shake off the feeling. I want to sleep more as I am so tired but the anxiety wakes me up. I feel like life is one long torture at the moment. I have a baby so I should be happy but I just feel more useless and dead than ever.

Does anyone else experience morning anxiety/panic? How do you control it?

i'm sorry, this can be very irritating and painful, i feel like that every morning and in the beginning it was just horrible, now i am so used to it that i just lie in bed for hours and can't get up because i feel too bad or dizzy. so sadly i don't have any solution for this problem, but perhaps you should try getting up and do something so you get tothink about something else? didn't work for me, but who knows...

does your baby sleep thru the night yet?
are you doing anything for the PND? (is that post-natal depression? like post-partum depression?) maybe your hormones are still in flux from having the baby? have you talked to your dr. about it?

welcome, by the way. I'm a mommy to a 4 yr old, nice to meet a fellow mom.
