  • sounds like you might have PPD.
    google it and you should be able to find home treatments for it.

  • Take symptoms of PPD seriously and talk to your doctor. It is not your fault but you must get some help. My sis went through the same thing and ended up on meds temporarily to get her to a better place.

  • First of all, you're not a bad mom or a bad girlfriend. What you're feeling a lot of women have felt. You might even be able to find a mom's group of women who have had PPD. I know it hurts, but it is caused by hormones and it will pass. Right now you need support. Let your loved ones know you need it. It would be REALLY good if you could see a doctor, I don't know if there is some help available for you. Don't you have medicare or anything? Hang in there, mama, this is a hard time and you are very brave.
