It's amazing how you can wait 7 years to have another baby, be ecstatic when he's born....then 4 months later, you don't even wanna so much as wake up when he cries. I told my doc, "It's not that I want to throw him out, or hurt him, I just don't want to take care of him. At all." She told me that's normal for PPD sufferers. So, I started the Zoloft last night, and it seems like the one side effect I'm having is a big cut in appetite, which isn't a problem lol....

I obviously have no children yet, ten more weeks for that to come. But PPD really scares me! I had a week off from work during christmas, and got so depressed about everthing that i was miserable the whole holiday season.
I dont know what to do when my baby comes, I cant keep my job. Putting him in daycare is not what I want to do, and the cost of that alone wouldnt make me any extra money. My husband works, but I'm just afraid of having too much time with just me and baby, and i'll start thinking too much about things.
I'm rambling. I'm just scared I guess. Ive heard people talk about PPD like its a myth or something. I havent suffered from it, but I know it is not a myth.

I don't think I have PPD necesarily, but I already had depression since my mom got sick last January, and then died in April.....It did get WORSE after birth, and I started on some antidepressants after, but then I stopped because I'm too snobby I guess. I want to start counselling sometime.

People have had success with counselling?

Thank you Natasha Porsche, and Dinca, I appreciate it. I know it isn't good to self medicate like that, but on some days it really gives me energy and makes me happy. I mean happy that makes me wanna be alive and happy that makes me feel worthwhile. You know, the happy that we all need to feel. I have some underlying issues as well that make things even harder and none of them I could have controlled, even though I blame myself.
