It's best to speak to your doctor or go to the Post Partum International Support website to read up on it. PPD is like the baby blues, but the sadness doesn't go away. Symptoms include: feelings of worthlessness, thoughts of suicide, thoughts of abdonement, sleeplessness, weight loss, intense sadness/crying, anxiety...the list really does go on and on. If you suspect for even a second that you may have PPD, go to your doctor and ask for a referral to a specialist. Do not settle for a family physician's diagnosis. They will simply prescribe you some antidepressant without getting to the core of the issue.
