I don't get to be depressed???

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I just had a baby and I've been extremely depressed lately (loss of apetite, no sleep, bad thoughts) and I said I worried sometimes I might have ppd, this chick said that since I've lost all of my baby weight super quick and I have a good husband I shouldn't get to complain.


How can I control how I feel? I know I'm lucky. I know my thoughts are irrational. I also know that sometimes my thoughts towards myself scare me, that I'm not eating,that I feel ugly and dirty almost violated. I thought she was kind of a b!tch.

Aww hunny I know the feeling :-( My hormones went wacko since I started having children. Not only with ppd but I'm still suffering from anxiety and get depressed often. and my children are already 4 yrs and 19 months. This is something out of your control. Don't let someone make you feel bad about it. Just go get checked and get the help you need. I was on meds and they really helped. It's amazing what we as woman and our bodies have to go through. Keep your head up and know that there are brighter days ahead and that there is help out there!! Best if luck!

She was being a "B". I had PPD too, and it is scary and sad and you cannot help it. 

See a doctor ASAP and hope you feel better soon! XO

Ignore her and ask for help from your doctor. She speaks as a woman who has never had ppd. I have had it. Trust me talk to your doctor.

Oh let me add, because my dh is a pastor, I had people tell me I couldn't have ppd. I needed to pray more and appreciate the perfect life and husband I have etc etc. Uh pastors are people too and they aren't perfect. While my dh is a great man, he is not perfect and just because my dh is a pastor does not mean we are immune to problems or physical problems like PPD.  HUGS. That was many years ago now and time does fade it, but you will never forget and you will be so glad when yo do get past it. Hang in there and again ask for help.

It amazes me that people are still so ignorant about PPD. You do what you need to do to take care of yourself and get some help and let people like this eat their own feet.

Tell that chick to shove it, you don't control your hormones, which is what post partum depression is caused by.
