Let me start by saying, I LOVE my son and daughter. I have not had any suicidal thoughts, or any thoughts of hurting my kids at all ever.
My son is EBF, but until about 3 weeks ago, had the worst colic ever. If he wasn't eating or sleeping, he was crying. He would literally eat for 11 hours at a time. They finally put him on Prevacid which is helping..but I'm still having a hard time keeping up with everything in life with the two kids. I get so outrageously angry at my DH for not taking care of anything at the house, and I feel hopeless, because he is "too afraid" to be left alone with the baby..so I can never leave the house by myself. I had to drop out of school, and can't take job offers because there is no help. I mentioned PPD, and he scoffed at the idea.
I cried and cried the other day over various things. We're too broke for me to put either kids in day care, or for me to even have the gas to take the kids anywhere.
I eat constantly, I cry easily, and I'm extremely angry, mostly at my husband..but I have less patience with my 4 yo than I used to.
Does this sound like PPD, or just stress and no support from DH??
If it is PPD what do I do? I really don't want to be put on anti-depressants.
Sounds like it I had it really bad tho, like I wanted to die, jade had colic and was premie, I went to dr. And got meds within few days I felt better...
U can pm me anytine u just wanna talk or whatever
yes it sounds like it. you don't HAVE to be put on anti depressants. I'd suggest communicate with your husband at how you feel & you NEED to be able to get out of the house & take a break from the kids or you will go crazy. Take b-complex vitamins, it does wonders for your emotions. I was just diagnosed with pdd & tried the anti depressant & felt like i was on exstacy all day long, horrible experience, never again. but getting out of the house & my husband just giving me a break has done WONDERS on my mood. Anti depressants isn't for everyone, but they are for some. if you're willing to try 'em, then i'd call your doc asap, they take a while to get into your system.
