I didn't realize that I had ppd after DD1 until she was about 18 months.  I felt like such a fraud all the time. 'You must love being a mom!' people would say. I would smile all the while thinking, 'actually, I feel like I hate it.'  It really got bad.  I felt like I didnt have any connection to my DD. :(  I got to the point of no longer being able to live like that. Counseling really helped me get through.  Is that an option for you?  Usually medication alone isn't enough.

 

((HUGS)) I hope you can get the help you deserve to be a joyful mama and a joyful woman!
