: My son, Zach, was born 9 wks. ago. I'm so thankful to have him in my life, but....I feel so down all the time. Crying jags, irritated easily, etc. I would appreciate any advice if you've gone through this. Is it pospardum depression, or am I crazy?? My family says it's hormones, and I should get over it. What should I do?

Hi, you are definately not alone. I had my daughter last sept. and for months I (and everyone who knew me) thought I was going insane. I was a total mess, irritable, moodswings, crying all the time. It was very frustrating because I was so happy to finally be a mom after trying for 5 years but I did not feel like myself. it finally worked itself out and I've pretty much gone back to normal. I just kind of rode it out because of a couple different reasons: I was breastfeeding and didn't want to take any medications, I was embarrassed and afraid that the dr would say I was just overtired and overwhelmed, and I kept thinking that it couldn't possibly last very long. If I could redo it I would of at least went and talked to someone about it instead of suffering in silence. I think alot of women go though this. good luck and congradulations on your new baby.
