PPD or just PP hormones?

I'm not sure what's up with me. I'm almost 5 months postpartum and can't get a grip on my emotions! I am weepy and irritable most of the time and it sucks! I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder I way back when... I've also had severe PPD. This doesn't feel like PPD, but maybe just a touch of depression/anxiety.
I've been off meds for almost six years... Maybe it's time I go back on them??

Might be time to at least bring it up with a psychiatrist.

I agree. You need to take care of you! I just want to say too, good for you in recognozing for yourself that you may need some extra help. No shame in that. If you can't take care of you, you can't take care of baby!! Good Luck!

 You should bring this up to your doctor asap. Even if it's not full blow PPD you should get it taken care of so that you can get back to feeling like yourself again. I had mild depression before my dd but got PPD badly and had to go back on my meds. Good luck!

Definitely talk to your doctor. Having has problems in the past increases future risk. Better to take care of it before it gets really it of control :-)

A visit to your psychiatrist might be warranted.
