Hi! I had my little girl, Courtney, on Monday, July 24. Today is August 2. I am going through post-partum depression and it is driving me nuts. I cry instantly, most of the time for no reason. How long does this depression normally last? I am so happy to have Courtney and my 3 1/2 year old daughter, Kailey, but I feel so overwhelmed. I am afraid of making my oldest daughter feel lonely. I am so confused about going back to work or staying home. I have this terrible fear that something bad will happen to one of them or my husband. I am a total mess. Is this normal and how long before it ends? It has been about 6 days since I started this. Please help! I need some encouraging words.
