Think of how much sleep you're actually getting. Its probably not enough...when your own body isn't taken care of, how can you expect it to function not just normally, but at the speed you have to keep up to be a mom of a new baby?! The unfortunate part is that, honestly, it doesn't matter how you feel most of the time...you just have to do everything anyway. I felt the same way after my daughter and I worry what I will feel like when I give birth to this baby since I wont be able to nap with the baby since I have a 3 year old to take care of too. Its definitely overwhelming, but as your child grows and becomes a little less needy, you will start to get back to normal.
