I never have considered that I may have post partum because I LOVE my son soooooooo much I would give my right arm just to make him happy... But I find that I get frustrated with him easily, I've been like that since the beginning really but its more and more to the point that sometimes I just yell at him. He is only 10 months old, I KNOW he doesnt understand that when he pinches me or pulls my hair it hurts; but I get so agrrevated I just put him down and then he starts crying and before you know it im at the end of my rope... Could it be post partum? Or do I just have anger issues? I dont ever want to hurt him...but sometimes I want to just leave him on the floor crying and it breaks my heart to feel like that :-(Answer Question

Doesn't sound like PPD. I suggest you google to get more info. Sorry you are going through that. You just seem to be overwhelmed. Is there anyone around to help give you a break once in awhile?

with my first child, my postpartum lasted about 2 years.... it got worse as time went on and turned into full blown depression. i couldn't get help because my ex-husbands insurance wouldn't cover anti-depressants. with my daughter, i wasn't allowed to leave the hospital until i had one dose of WellbutrinXL and a Rx for it. that helped the second time around. everyone is different, but if your concerned, talk to your doctor.
