Post partum depression

I started medication today for PPD. God I am miserable. When I asked the nurse how long this will last there was a very long silent pause and then a short "It varies from person to person" Okay moms with or who had PPD. How long did it last for you and how bad did it get? Please be honest

  • I guess for me it lasted 6 month. Now I am working from home and this helps a lot. I am talking to more moms who usually went through what I have.
