Postpartum Depression

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

It just dawned on me recently that I had postpartum depression unbeknownst to me for E's first year of life. I had kind of big personality shift last year and no one really noticed. I wasn't even around my friends for them to really notice. I didn't make or return phone calls. I was so in the dark that I couldn't even tell. It's weird to realize it now that I'm not there anymore and my personality has shifted back to the old me...actually I'm a better me now! Whenever I've been depressed in the past, I would always know I was depressed. I didn't this time. 

 

 

Anyone else have PPD after your January '12 baby? What has your experience been like?

I had PPAD after the birth of my first.  It lasted about 6-9 months and I seriously wanted to die.  Freaking miserable experience that I wouldn't wish on anyone.  Luckily I only had it that one time...and I remember really worrying about it while pregnant with the second kid.

That's how it felt...there were days where I felt so dead inside that I just figured I was really better off dead! I really think sleep deprivation is harmful to the mind.
