  • Actually I think you DID spell it right. It looks weird tho.
    I think you need to get to the doctor. You very well may be suffering from it. I have dealt with my own depression and it did come with a bleak difficult cloud, lack of motivation and willingness to even get out of bed some days.

  • sounds very very possible. See your dr you dont have to feel this way. the right meds can help a lot. Its hard too with a new baby and lack of sleep, hormones out of control, if you are breastfeeding your body is not your own. Its enough to make anyone crazy. I suffered pretty badly after my second child. I went back on meds I had stopped during pregnancy and started seeing a therapist I had previously seen for couples counseling on my own. Good luck. It gets better.
