  • This can be a classic symptom of depression, either Post Partum or the old fashioned to a help care provider about your feelings

  • It does sound like some form of depression. Whether its post partum or just depression. Seek medical advice. Try doing a search on CM for a local playdate group

  • you sound a lot like me. You have got to make an appointment with your health care provider. Don't be embarassed.... just do it. I started seeing mine in November for post partum depression and my son is 20 months old. I denied it for a long time. Please go and see someone.

  • def depression. i would get on some meds and while you wait for them to get in your system.... do yoga, mediatate, take up walking, read, listen to classical music, go get a massage or get a break from the kids. also sit down and make a list of "blessings" you have lots to be thankfl for and to live for sit down and write them down.. all of them! pray, pray, pray and rebuke those bad thoughts!
