  • Have you talked to your doctor about it? It could just be PPD, but it could also be something more serious like your thyroid. Mine went bad 2 weeks after having my last baby. Can you share your symptoms with us?

  • Could it be post-postpartum depression? Depression that occurs soon after giving birth? Or hormonal imbalance? Don't be embarrassed for sure. Talk it over with your doctor. Something isn't right and a blood work up or physical exam may help identify it and get you to feeling better. Good luck to you.

  • Yes. I'm tired all of the time, very angry and irritable. My son is 16 months so I guess I thought I should have been over than by now if it was PPD. I feel like I want to cry. I don't really want to be around others too much. I feel sometimes like people are against me (that really makes me feel like some weird person stuck in a corner somewhere). Sometimes I don't eat at all sometimes I eat a lot (I've always had a hefty appetite though). Sometimes I'm afraid I may really hurt someone when angry. I don't like that. On the flip side, the day could go wonderful. I want to come out and hang out, and I generally feel good.

  • Reads to be standard hormone imbalance... my guess is estrogen dominance... try looking up Dr John Lee or visiting for some guidance to get you started on your path to feeling normal.
