Quoting *Momlette*:" I would just put my son in his crib and close the door for a few...I'm not a fan of cio but better then ... [snip!] ... then getting so angry you shake him or something I had PPD with my second child. Its hard. I'm here if u need to vent."I do that when I really need to. But it's getting to the point where I feel like I want to leave the country for a week.

Quoting *Momlette*:" Have you asked ur doc for meds? I felt so bad because I didn't feel attached to my son. I knew I loved ... [snip!] ... I loved him but I was so mad at him when he would cry and I didn't want to be around him...you will work through it I promise."That's exactly how I feel. I was on Zoloft before I got pregnant, and it worked. I tried it again after she was born and it did nothing but make me gain weight, so I stopped taking it. I'm trying to get in to a doctor or a therapist, but it's hard when my family just thinks I'm lying for attention or don't want to take responsibility for my child.
Quoting Supafly★:" You don't have anyone that would watch him? It may feel like you want to run away for a week(I had this ... [snip!] ... past few days) but what you probably need is just an hour or 2 to feel like a normal human and not be on auto-pilot to crying. "My nana could watch her while I take a walk, but it's pretty cold outside. I don't drive and I have no where I could go.

Quoting *Momlette*:" Don't pay them any mind. You know how you feel is real. I tried zoloft but that smurf made me crazy ... [snip!] ... it on my own but there may be a med that works better for you. I'm sorry your family doesn't realize PPD is a very real thing."How long after LO was born did you get over your PPD?
Quoting Supafly★:" Maybe not right now, but set something up where you could go out with friends or shopping or something ... [snip!] ... nana watch the baby. Just the fact that you have a plan to baby-free may help since it gives you something to look forward to. "I might be able to talk my mom into taking the baby out for a while this weekend. I always feel so guilty when someone watches her, because they already think I'm just too lazy to take care of her
Quoting Ellie Shikari:" I went away for a night when I got really bad. But I felt horrible and missed her so much. After that, her crying etc didn't seem to bother me so much because I realised how much I needed her..."I think that's what I need. I need to be away from her when I don't want to be, instead of just long enough to breathe.
