I have been suffering PPD pretty bad (my son is now 11wks). I have dealt with depression in the past, so I was pretty sure that was what was happening...it got to the point I didn't want much to do with my son, I hated looking at him while I fed him (especially while BFing - I slowly even gave that up because I would get so depressed while doing it), I cried daily, I wanted to just curl up in bed constantly but could barely sleep even when I was given time to do so, I became disinterested in things like sex & going out, etc. I brought it up at my 6wk appointment, but that doctor said that some women are just unhappy after birth & that I would learn to deal with it...so I saw another OB for my IUD appointment (@ 10wks post partum) & she prescribed Prozac & gave me a list of the local mental health clinics so I can make a follow-up appointment. It's only been a week, but I am glad I asked for help...
