i would say it is just baby blues except when she is crying in the middle of the night i get so angry i just want to slap her to shock her into stopping. i would NEVER do it though. i still care for her and love her and am bonded with her but i find myself very frustrated easily. she is almost 3 weeks old. i am bipolar type II but have not been on meds since march when i got pregnant.

I get the same way.......You just don't know what to do......You just get so frustrated and even tho you know you shouldn't and that you can truly handle this.....your brain won't let you. You just want to give up! It's not baby blues. Those feelings and those thoughts make it a deeper issue then just the baby blues. And with you having a Bi Polar disorder you are more likely to have to fight PPD as well. I suggest talking to your Dr and see about starting your meds again. It will help you GREATLY!

Just read my last venting post.......That's without meds, But when I have my meds, I have my mind back. I'm able to see problems and calmly deal with them without flying off the handle and screaming and yelling. I used to Scream and yell at my DD when she would cry. I would yell at her and tell her that I was going to leave her. and that since she didn't love me I was just going to walk away and she wouldn't have to see me again. all because she was crying. My meds have kept me from saying things and then hating myself for thinking them. So Go talk to your Dr. Most Dr's now a days are more understanding of this condition.

We are here for you if you need to scream and yell. we also have the Private borad up above that you can vent in....Just PM me for the password

Thank you for responding. It is much worse at night because that is when I feel most alone with dh gone.
