So upset Amanda Contento Florida 2302 posts

I get so irritated with my son when he cries. I don't know if it is PPD or if it is because of my thyroid levels being high (just found this out yesterday). Like tonight he wakes up crying and snot coming down from him crying. I suck his nose out, put saline drops in, suck his nose again (of course he is screaming while I am doing this). I try holding and rocking him back to sleep but he just continues to cry and scream so I said to myself if he is going to cry while I hold him he might as well cry in his bed. I had things to get done. He's screaming at the top of his lungs in his bed, I just can't handle this. I said to my head I wish I could just suffocate you. I know I don't mean it and I feel terrible and still crying after saying that. I don't know why I said it, anyone else going through this? BTW my son will be 1 yr Nov 4th.

I don't know if it's PPD either but I do know that being hypothyroid can cause depression. Among other things.



I hope you feel better soon.

Do you have anyone who can come give you a break?



I'd talk to a therapist, for sure. Hang in there, remember it gets better and this isn't forever.

Yup, I agree with the therapy option.

I usually have my husband around but this week he is in Texas for work. I just feel like I am doing everything wrong with him, like nothing I do works. When my husband is home, he cries and screams for my husband but not me. I leave the room and he will cry but when my husband is home, he doesn't even know I am there. I know I would never hurt my kids, I love them too much and it hurt my heart when I thought that and I wish I could rewind the night and not say it.
