my friend told me I might have ppd. She had it with her 2nd child. Here's my story...
In November I had my son via emergency c-section. They didn't know until then that he was breech. He was born ON his "supposed" due date according to the ultrasound. Well he had meconium in his lungs. They told me he was very sick. Later on he had a seizure from sedation meds. they gave him (and they never asked our permission) to put a feeding tube in him. We were in the hospital with him a week trying to get him well and teaching him to breastfeed. He had no suck or gag reflex when he was born. They told me he would be 'slow' (he's not).
My son is 7 months old now and I don't feel like I used to still. Like I said my friend says I have ppd. Pretty much I don't have a babysitter. I am with my son by myself most of the time because his Dad works. I refuse to put him in daycare this young. I hardly ever want sex. I mean, I didn't want it all the time before I had him but I at least wanted it a couple times a week. Hell, we think he was conceived one night when we had sex 4 times.
I'm tired a lot, but I can't seem to take naps when he does hardly ever. And he has a hard time going to sleep at night so I am up with him until 2 in the morning sometimes. I feel like my nerves are shot. Everything gets on my nerves. We have this place here called Advantage Behavioral Health that deals with depression, anxiety, etc. They take you as a patient and charge you based on your income. They give you meds. and all. I've been there before but it's been a few years and I had quit going on my own. Do you think i should start going back there?
