Taking Zoloft throughout my second pregnancy was a decision my husband, Erik, and I made together. We'd sat with the genetic counselor and had come to the conclusion that my mental stability far outweighed the risks for the baby.
Of course, this was ten years ago—long before there was research on how Zoloft affects the foetus.
I’d been on and off of antidepressants for almost a decade. During those off times, I'd snap at Erik. “Quit touching me. Quit telling me how great you think I am.”
After I repeatedly tried to sabotage our relationship, we finally agreed that I should stay on my meds. Popping that pill meant choosing happiness.
At 29 years old, Erik's heart flicked off like a switch.
