I wasn't sure where exactly to post this.. I haven't been diagnosed with postpartum depression, but I'm pretty positive that's what I've been struggling with. DS is 8 months old. I've been on somewhat of an emotional roller coaster since he's been born. Fleeting highs, with really low lows that seem to go on for a really long time. I've been in this rut I'm in for a while. I'm wondering if it'll ever end. Is it possible for postpartum depression to "go away" without treatment? Probably seems like a stupid question..
<blockquote><b>Quoting Chelsea Renae:</b>" Thank you both! I keep telling myself I can just deal with it & it'll go away eventually. But it hasn't yet. I'll probably end up talking to my doctor about it soon!"</blockquote>
And why would you want to "just deal with it".
You deserve to feel normal again, and you won't believe how easy that is
I'm not sure honestly. I guess I just kind of feel defeated. For whatever reason. I guess I just don't like admitting that I do need help. I know there's no shame in it. I just never imagined I'd end up having ppd. I'll convince myself it's just going to go away. But here I am, eight months pp and still can't rise above it. Definitely something I need to talk to my doctor about. I do deserve to feel better, in general.
