Crazy biotch!

I feel like a ranting, raving, nit picking, ungrateful, spiteful biotch most of the time since I've had my baby. I know it takes a while for your hormones to get back to normal, but it's been 6 months already. I've given more apologies to my spouse and 8 yr. old in the past 6 months than ever before, and frankly I am tired of it.Can anyone tell me about how much more of this I have to deal with? When will I be back to my old self?

  • might be PPD. Depression isn't always as clear as "crying all the time" Depression can manifest in many ways. I am clinically depressed and I know it's worse when I snap at hubby for almost no reason.

  • When my kids wer elittle and I was breastfeeding, I used to get really frustrated because I spent so much time with one child and did not have time to clean and other things that needed to be done. I just had to remind myself that my baby would be grown soon and all those things would be waiting for me and I would never get that time back with my baby. When i get frustratd, I usually yell more. Don't wait til it's too late. If you or your family think there's something wrong, go see a doctor about it. There's nothing wrong with that. God bless you.

  • OMG.......I'm 3 weeks away from delivering and I'm praying that getting her out will take the psychotic episodes out of me! It could honestly be PPD though, if it continues too much longer I would call my doctor. It's always better to get help for it! Good luck...

  • I felt like breastfeeding was a calming device for me. When I was on BC I was extremely verbally agressive w/ moodiness to match. I agree that PPD can take many forms, and is worth an appt to speak with your midwife or ob/gyn or family doc.
