Signs of PPD
I suffered from some pretty nasty PPD after Audrey was born. It took me a long time to admit that there was a problem, and even longer to recognize it as PPD. I didn't feel sad or angry. I loved my daughter and had a great bond with her. I just didn't feel anything. I almost felt like a zombie, or like I was watching my life like one would watch a movie. I would react to things a certain way because I knew that's how I was supposed to react, not because I felt the emotions I was faking. It was very lonely, and I am so thankful that I eventually got the help I so badly needed!
If you are feeling at all unlike yourself after a couple weeks - or even up to a year after your baby is born, please contact your OB and get some help!
