my baby is 2 months old. lately I have been crying a lot having anger fits ... I have suicidal thoughts like when I'm driving I feel like crashing into a car ... I cry yell at myself and I say hurtful things to myself, I also think about scrapping my baby's head throwing him away or just harming him . I've read on the Internet that this is normal but can be serious depression I'm also a single mom and actually got pregnant the first month of knowing this guy I feel unwanted and unloved .. I usually don't want to cheer up and I'm worried cuz its like I want to be down all the time.... help! any stories or advice will help...

Welcome!

You should definitely talk to your doctor about your feelings, especially since you've had suicidal thoughts and thoughts of harming your child.

There is a lot of help out there and no reason to give up hope.

Postpartum depression is normal. You need to see a doctor right away. Once you get help, you'll feel better. The first step is realization, so you should feel good about that. You can get thru this.

Hun you need to get help. Those arent normal thoughts. I have had ppd THREE times. In fact i still have ppd at 14 months pp. You need to find someone you trust to watch your child while you get help. You dont want to do something you may regret. Please get help.

I didnt have thoughts of hurting him. I just at times would go days without being around him. then I didnt want to ever put him down. and I cried alot and was mad alot.
