Sadly I can tell you Welcome to Post Partum Depression. the way you are feeling is pretty much how I felt and some times still do feel. Very iritable always wanting to just scream and yell at everyone. It's a horrible feeling. And the only real way to help is by seeing your Dr. and possiably a counsler.

At least you are noticing the change now and not later on down the road. Just keep reminding yourself that it's just your hormones messed up and it should help you take a breath before you blow your stack. Even tho it's hard to do....but it's better for you and everyone around you until you can get into see a Doc.



ETA: we won't hate you.......We know what it feels like. So feel free to say what even you want to here. We have been there and some of us are still there. That's the joy of this board. We all KNOW what it's like.

The being mean part is a way for some people to deal with feelings of disapointment in ourselves. We are so upset and so angry with the way we feel and the way we think our life is going that we tend to take it out on the people we love the most. The want and need to run away is our way of coping with KNOWING we are being mean and hateful. As well as the thinking of everyone will be better off without you. But in all honesty it's not true....They need us more then anything, and that's what makes you scream and yell...because they need you and all you can be is mean to them. It's confusing.....painful...and just not a great feeling.
In all honesty No matter how much you don't like dr's or can't afford it or any such thing....the only true way to get this taken care of is a Dr. You have a chemical imbalance in your brain.....a certain part has stopped making a hormone you need to beable to deal with life. that Hormone can be given to you in pill form and once you start taking them you will be somewhat yourself again. you will be able to look at your Children and see how much they love and need you. And you will see just what a hurtful person you had been to your DH or SO........You will beable to function like a human again instead of a zombie. It will amaze you just how bad off you were without the meds. Trust me, I was there....and still am some days. I hate taking meds....heck I don't even take anythign for a headache! Dr's are only if you are so sick you can't get out of bed......BUT I couldn't keep screaming and yelling otherwise my DD would grow up thinking that is what a mom is supose to be like. Please see a Dr....even if it's a thearpist. Otherwise it will only get worse from here......you will go further into the hole your in.....and you don't want that....trust me.

As for the eating.......keep trying to eat. even if it's just a few snack thru the day.....you need nutients in order to work towards getting your mind back. getting your life back.

How are you feeling shorty? I went thru it with DD. I was surprised I didn't with Dominic, but I was to busy grieving. It took me about 6 months to work thru my issues without Zoloft that just made me feel worse. I hope you are doing better hun <3

Just had to tell you that being 20 with 3 kids isn't a bad thing at all!! one of my friends is 22 and is pregnant with her 4th. Her brother isn't even 20 yet and is the proud father of 2 children with one on the way. It just means you will be able to enjoy them much longer then those of us that waited to have kids.

Also I feel I must tell you that depression is a chemical imbalance in your body. It's not something you can correct on your own. You actually need meds to get your brain to start making the chemical again. I'm not say then being on meds is the best. But the way I look at it is.....This way I can function like a normal person in socioty, I won't be causing my child to grow up thinking that life is horriable. And will be able to enjoy the full hearted hug and kisses that you can give him without the feelings of depression. And even having thoughts of suicide just once is a big sign of needing help....even if it's just a therapest. I just wanted to tell you this in hopes of you actually going and getting help. Don't be ashamed of suffering to the point that you damage your own life. PPD is a real issue and you deserve to be able to enjoy your babies life!

Ok stepping of my soap box. Sorry I just hate to see some one suffer when they really don't have too.
