How did you feel? I'm not sure if I'm overreacting or not and if it's actually ppd. Some days though, I just feel like I wanna pack my stuff and go far away. It's so awful, and I hate myself for feeling like that, but I do. I'm just so lonely and unhappy lately. It started about a month ago, and I thought it was the birth control I was on, so I stopped taking it, but I'm still depressed. I love my daughter to death, and I know I do, I act like I do, I'm protective like I do, but for some reason I can't muster up the feeling of love like I had the first two months after she was born. I feel like a zombie some days, and I'm just so scared that if I go to the doctors they'll think I'm unfit and take her away from me. I could not stand losing her, she is my life. Anyone else feel this way?
Also, can I take anti-depressants while breastfeeding?

ppd is when you can be happy and turn sad in a snap or angry or go back to happy like nothing happened. feeling sad, even crying for no reason and then happy again. Loving your kid and not loving your, taking care of them or not. feel like hurting yourself or someone else but not actually doing and that can lead to pps. Call your ob and they will refer you to a therapist and psychiatrist to determine of you have it or not.
