I don't know who to talk to about this. I'm scared to tell anyone, so I thought maybe someone can comfort me on here.
I'm a 21 year old female. I got pregnant at 18 going on 19. Honestly, I hate being a mom. I don't enjoy mommy hood at all. It's not my son, it's me. He's beautiful, funny, and smart. But I don't bond with him, and like I said, I just don't enjoy mommy hood. I will never hurt him, I love him to bits and pieces. I acually spoil him. That's my baby. I don't show that I regret getting pregnant , basically. He bonds with his dad great , he's actually with his dad more then he's with me. I just wish I would have kept my legs closed. I was in love with his father, and for some stupid reason, I thought I was ready for him. Ever since I had him. I been depressed, and so self-conscious and insecure about myself! I feel as if I screwed up. I feel like my mom, and family are so disappointed in me. I honestly wish I didn't have a kid. I don't even want anymore. Ever again!! I feel so selfish, and cruel for saying this, and feeling like this. But I can't help how my heart feels. I wish I didn't feel like this. Really , I do!
I'm sorry if I offended anyone out there . I'm one of the moms who did NOT deserve such a great blessing. I'll be the first to admit that. Any thoughts on these feelings?!

After she had her first baby, Brook Shields said almost exactly what you are saying now. She had postpartum depression. You said you are feeling depressed. Go to your doctor and tell him what you just said to us.
