PPD? Why me?!

Hey there everybody!
My name is Marisa & I'm a first time single mommy to my baby boy Carlos Alexander-Matthew who was born 02/23/16.
I've suffered with major bipolar depression, anxiety & ADHD for as long as I can remember.
I had been placed on several medications & they were working great for me but towards the last trimester of my pregnancy & still now I am feeling more overwhelmingly depressed than ever. I'm worried because I am feeling inferior & alone as a single mom.
I was hoping that I would not suffer greatly from PPD since I was already being treated for all my issues but I am feeling hopeless.
I'm seeing my psychiatrist this coming week & I'm pretty nervous to tell him the truth about how I'm feeling for fear of judgement.
Any advice?

Tell him everything and get it out there. Try to do things that make u happy. Take walks with your baby that helps

He's not gonna judge you. He's there to help you. You need to tell him the truth.

Welcome, Marisa. : )

I am feeling the same thing. I am a single mother and feel like I have no choices.
