I have never felt so much guilt in my life. I feel like my whole world is caving in on me. I feel guilty for not breastfeeding my daughter longer. I feel guilty that I'm not going back to work yet, but if I do I know I would feel guilty for not being with my daughter. I feel guilty for not being able to help out financially. It is the first time since that I was 17 that I am not financially independent. I have always taken care of myself. bought what I wanted when I wanted and now I have to ask my husband for money to go buy things. And I feel guilty for that too. I hate asking for anything. At times I feel absolutely useless. I feel guilty for being angry at my hubsand when he has done nothing wrong. But I just feel so much guilt that i'm just angry and depressed all the time. I feel guilty that I don't want to have sex with my husband because i'm absolutely terrified that I will get pregnant again. I feel guilt all the time. I feel like it is just taking over my life. Maybe it's all just depression I don't know but I hate feeling this way! I feel so much guilt.....

Jun. 3, 2008 at 4:51 PM Do I know these feelings oh soooo well.  Please call you Dr.  You  are suffering from either Post Pardem Depression or the old fashioned kind.  My doctor put me on Celexa after I had my 1st child and I was sooo much better.  I now take B vitamins and they help alot.  Don't continue to feel guilt that you have not earned.  Others will understand , just ask for help.  Take care.

You poor thing.  My heart goes out to you.  I think every new mom goes through this stage.  It's scary.  I'm so sorry that you are experiencing this.  I agree with CooCoo...call your DR. ASAP and see about maybe some meds.  I started ZOLOFT during my pregnancy and I think it really helped to take the edge off.  I know you don't know me, but I'm a great listener and hope I can help you out!

Take care!

I Too Also Know These Feelings.  Sometimes I'm Fine And Sometimes I Just Feel Crappy And Useless All The Way Around.  It Gets Better A Little Bit Everytime. Im Sorry You Have To Feel This Way Too.
