I know a lot of women have had postpartum depression and for a while I thought I was one of those women. I kept telling myself I need to get help for my kids my babies they deserve better but then I got scared thinking " well what if the doctors think I am unfit mother because of my depression"? I love my kids immensely there is nothing I would not do for them, they can have my last ounce of blood if that's what they want. I read into postpartum and I don't think that's what it is. My emotions are nothing towards my kids its with everything in my life that has gone wrong, have been done to me , how people treated me and how I have been robbed of my childhood. I know I need help but im scared of the scrutiny of how I am a terrible mom and I don't want anyone taking my kids away.

    No no thats not it at all everything from life changes and stuff we go through to even birth control can cause us to develop depression or depressed feelings. I'm going through it now and I love my son with all my heart and my feelings are never bad towards him but im still experiencing post partum depression. just talk to your doctor they put you on something just until your hormones get straightened out it works wonders you will have so much more energy and finally feel normal again and as for scrutiny they wont judge and no one is going to think you are an unfit mother tons of moms go through depression post partum or not you are not alone talk to your dr you will be glad you did.
