post partum depression

Hi, I've been diagnosed with post partum depression, my dd is about to be 10 months soon.
I'm not really sure how the depression happened...and I hate not being able to snap out of it.
Each day I wake up feeling sad, feeling ugly, and lazy. I have this beautiful child that I was blessed with, yet she doesn't feel mine sometimes. I cry all day, my husband says it's all in my head, he tells everyone I don't love my baby, that I'm a terrible mother, that I'm unattractive, and he constantly tells me that sex is the only thing that MIGHT save our marriage. I try every day to make my baby happy, but I can't help but be unhappy myself, as if my life has come to a halt. I do love my daughter, she's very healthy, and smart, but some how, I can't help but feel like I'm fucking up and I hate feeling like I wasn't cut out to be a mother....

((Hugs)) I went through PPD and didn't have a supportive husband too. It's only going to get worse with him. Start planning to get away from him. He is not helping you get better. Trust me, I have experience in this.

Sounds like your hubby is as much of a problem as your depression. He would make me depressed too. Get help for your depression ---and you might realize why your husband needs to change or it won't work.

All you do is go to your obgyn or family dr and tell them how you are feeling and that you think you might need some help getting yourself back on track, they will ask you a few questions and more than likely give you an antidepressant, most are mild and honestly work well with little to no side effects

My son is almost 16 months old and I still suffer from PPD. My doctor suggested seeing   therapist and , if I wanted them anti-depressents. I see a therapist once every two weeks now. At first it was twice a week. I was blessed in that my husband saw what was going on with me-crying all the time, feeling like a failure because I.couldn't breast feed, thoughts of harming our son-and he helped me find the help.I needed.

Hang in there, and talk to some one supportive about your feelings it will help!
