sometimes its just "baby blues" my PPD lasted for well in to a year and I was on antidepressants..its hard to say why it happens to some and not to others.. Dr told me that hormones go back to "normal" after 12 months but I am not sure about that either.. I think in no way was I prepared for how much guilt came with parenting anyway, besides the PPD or if that added to it.. don't think about the what if's of being on meds forever, feel that if they are wokring now, you will face what you need to later, but right now, this is necessary to PREVENT not being the best mom you can.. since having my son and after my PPD, I still cry over every little thing and I wasn't like this before, I even cried at Chucky Cheese at my son's 3 year birthday party... lol.. I wish you the best of lcuk and I am sure you are doing better than you give yourself credit for!!
