Since my baby was born 13 days ago I've been very depressed. My marriage is offically going to hell. Last night we both took off our wedding rings. All I do is cry and scream, all he does is ignore me and the girls. He was never like that until about a week ago. My kids are so stressed out. My 5 year old is acting out. We yell at her way to much. I can't bring myself to spend time with her even though I want to and know thats what she wants and needs. My new baby has gotten more tense the last couple days. She wants to be held all the time. All I can do is cry when I hold her because I feel so bad she has to deal with parents who are so tense and yelling or crying literally all the time. I feel like she shouldn't have had her and we tried for a year and took fertility drugs to have her. I can't even stop crying long enough to write this. DH knows I'm very depressed. He doesn't know what to do. I don't know what to do. We don't have anyone to take DD and she's in school so nobody could take her even if we had someone to. I told him last night I didn't want to be with him anymore. I honestly don't know why. I just want to run away. Part of me wants to pack up and go to a hotel or ask DH to. All day I've wished I wasn't a wife and mother so I can just walk away. I don't know how much more I can take.
Hi and Welcome to the PPD board. Have you called your Doctor? That should be your first step. Then even tho most men don't understand PPD it's always a good thing to let your DH know that you are suffering from it and that you need him to help you. that you still love him, that your chemical's are just messed up making you a little crazy...not the best or nicest way to put it but Men will understand it better that way. Have him take DD2 for a few hours so you and DD1 can spend some time reading books or coloring together. it can be a very relaxing down time for you that way Both reading and coloring are a great stress outlet even for adults. But Number one thing is to try and get into to see your Dr. The sooner the better.
