I would definitely talk to your doctor. I went to my OB b/c I don't have a regular doctor set up. If you are on birth control, that could be contributing to the depression. I have seasonal depression... in the winter time I get really depressed, birth control makes it worse. Last winter was the worst... I didn't want anything to do with my boys or my husband. I didn't care to get my butt off the couch or even out of bed to do anything. Even the thought of getting up to go to the bathroom or change one of my boys' diapers was a HUGE task to me. I neglected all of my household chores (I'm a SAHM)... laundry went for weeks w/o being done, dishes would sit for days at a time, etc.
If you need to talk to someone, please feel free to message me. Hang in there. There is hope and you can feel better!
