Talk to your doctor.  Now your doctor may currently be your OBGYN..... but they are not experts with PPMD, so, if you don't get a satisfying answer ask your General Doc to let you see a psych.  You need help ASAP.  Not every doctor takes PPMD as serious as it is.

You know your body, so if you get a "whatever" response, move on to the next doc.  

THis is urgent

Sometimes those darn hormones can get all messed up after having a baby.  Might need some help getting them back on track so that you can enjoy life again.  This is NOT your fault but you need to call your OBGYN immediately and let them know what is going on.  This is no fun when this happens and it doesn't have to be this way.  Many ((hugs))!

Did you get the medication you needed?  How are you feeling?  If you ever need to talk, please send me a message.  I check this site all the time but sometimes not this forum.  Don't hesitate to contact me.  Hope all is getting better.  ((hugs))

I also hope you have gotten some help.  Sometimes medication alone may not be the answer.  Sometimes it takes medication and counseling together.  I sure hope you have gotten the help you need.  I also hope it has helped you feel a bond w/ your son.  That is something very beautiful and I'd hate for you to totally miss out on that.  Best of luck to you and update us when you can!

So happy for you!  Each day will get better.  Just one day at a time and just enjoy that baby!  This is your time and have a great time with every moment.  Don't forget to let people help you or give you a break for you.  All mommies need this and it is ok!  ((hugs))!
