whats the fine line between baby blues and PPD?

So I gave birth on Oct. 1st...and it hasnt been TOO bad...I TRY my hardest to keep upbeat about everything, but most of it is putting on a front. I can;t enjoy anything anymore, and just cry for NO REASON all the time! I cant stand the way i look now (and i bounced back from the baby quickly! already in pre pregnancy clothes, no stretch marks or anything!) i have a wonderful husband, and everything is great, so i know i SHOULD be happy, but parts of the day i am, and other parts im not, and then i get upset at myself for being upset because i dont want to be! I have stayed on top of housework, cooking,cleaning, laundry, taking care of baby, and that doesnt bother me at all, and everyone says to slow down but when im not doing it, i feel like im not doing my part, and im just lazy...plus it gives me time to just sit and think about things and then i get all worked up again =/ So when do i need to seek help if it keeps up??
