I am 19. I had my daughter when I was 18, and now I suffer from PND. My daughter is a beautiful 13 month old and I adore her so much. When she was 3months old, my father was in a terrible accident, and now suffers from permanent brain damage. He is slowly recovering, but because of this, I have become very depressed. Not to mention that my partner was also involved in the accident, though he was not injured, the mental and emotional harm was severe for him. We both find ourselves so stressed out at the end of the day. I get VERY mad and yell and scream all the time. At the time I don't know what I am doing. I am on medication but I am not sure that it is helping me much. I grew up with my parents fighting all the time and that is all I remember from my childhood. I do not want my baby to go through what I did. I love her so much and I would never hurt my baby girl but sometimes I get scared to tell anyone. I feel that if I mention this to anybody, that they would take her away from me. Am I crazy?
