How did you handle your PPD???? Meds? I'm SO afraid of losing a connection with my emotions if I were to go on meds, and the side affect that you can become suicidal scares me sooo much...
Has anyone done it holistically? *sp?*
I really feel there's a connection between the probs my husband and I have in our marriage to the depression i'm feeling now, post partum. It's all just made it worse. I just don't know what to do about it....
I'm tired all the time...no motivation to do anything....I have good days some days and other times bad days...but mostly bad. I'm having a hard time being affectionate with my husband as well....HELP!

Help how? PPD is self-limiting. It doesn't last forever. The majority of mothers that get it recover without treatment. Your feelings sound in normal for a mom with a young baby. You are sleep deprived and there is strain on your marriage. Don't let fear of side effects keep you from taking meds if that's what a professional recommends. Antidepressants don't make you lose connection with your feelings. At least they don't do that to me at all. I have to take them to prevent migraines. You can have feelings of suicide if you don't take antidepressants.
