I think I may be depressed. Not sure if it'd be considered PPD or not. I have no energy, I don't eat much, it's hard for me to get things done around the house on a daily basis, I feel alone and distant from everyone, I get agitated and frustrated very easily. I just don't know. I'm not sure of it's depression or I'm just overwhelmed. We're broke, I never really get out of the house, I have no friends, and my family never invites me out anymore. I just don't know. I practically lay around taking care of the baby all day, every day.



I'm so confused and scared. :?

That's how I felt when I had PPD. If you would consider antidepressants, Celexa worked great for me.

Yes I'll consider them. Are they safe while breastfeeding?
