The last couple weeks I've become depressed and not as interested/happy about the baby. I know that probably sounds like a terrible thing to say, but it's true. I'm just feeling so achy and overwhelmed with everything...what if I hate being at home with the baby? What if the baby has colic and I can't deal with it? What if the baby has a terrible health problem? What if it's too hard living without my income? It's too much, and I think my brain is coping by trying to detach from the situation.

The frustrating thing is that I already take an SSRI (for anxiety), so you'd think I'd be extra-covered from depression. I gotta say, though, that taking the SSRI just seems to make some things worse. What if it hurts the baby? What if the baby has some of the withdrawal symptoms?

I just had to tell someone else about this.
