My son is 22 months, I had no signs of depressions while I was pregnant or after he was born. I had an abortion in Febuary because we knew we could not afford another baby and with issues going on we had been drinking when my son was not at home. My fiance now has a job and things have been going well, however now I feel like I do not want to go to work or come home. Is this post partum or some kind of depression??? I love my son more than anything but I do not like being around people.
Not sure what is going on without a more complete evaluation of your symptoms. You may benefit from some counseling to address these feelings you are having. Developing some insight might be all it takes to overcome your feelings of not wanting to be around people. Have you ever pursued any type of therapy? Your doctor might be able to recommend a good counselor or you can always google "therapist finder" and use one of the locator sites to find ones near you. I highly recommend it and a good therapist can determine if you are suffering from depression.
I'm sorry to hear you're feeling so bad,I agree with Laurie,I think you may benefit from some councelling,you might need it after having the abortion so soon after your son was born,its alot for you to go through.
I understand you love your son,but you cant help how you feel,try get to see a therapist,you need to look after yourself aswel as your son,and you need to be better for him,so talking to a pro might help..
Wishing you all the best,i hope you find the help you need soon!
Yes, I beleive you might have post partum depression. I had it after my son was born and went to the doctor. He thought I was just having the blues but later in my life I had a major depression so don't delay go to your doctor and don't forget to mention all the details of how you feel o.k.? It's important for your full recover of this. Good luck and take care.
