Have family and friends help you as much as possible, or atleast be around you and your baby. Can you call and set up an appointment to see a counselor soon? I would look up some different counselors or talk to your insurance company and they can give you some names and numbers of counselors for ppd. And depending, you may not need a referral.
Also try eating well, get enough sleep, try to go out and do things for yourself, get a break from your baby, go get your nails done or go hang out with a friend for a few hours. These are all things that my counselor told me to do.

Im sorry, thats terrible. I have degrees.in psychology and counseling and ppd is really serious. I would definitely talk to a therapist who can put you on medication to help with your symptoms. Some families are afraid to admit their is these illnesses out there. Its a tough road but you can get through it.
go to a counselor or something, ppd is very serious and needs to be taken care of asap, not 2-3 weeks with a new born, he may be your family doctor and you trust him and what not, but what is more important? if you are to wait, then make sure to have someone there with you and the baby at all times, since it is possible to get worse and you could end up hurting yourself or your child.
