i am a single mom to a 17 month old little boy and ahve been struggling with PPD since he was born. during my pregnancy i had prenatal depression and was put on depression meds. i was alone, scared, and felt like i didnt know what i was doing. Then when my son was born it got really really bad. i have been in therapy since he was 5 weeks old because i couldnt even care for him. now he is 17 months old and i am still having a very hard time. i cry constantly. i have a hard time just dealing day to day. sometimes i feel like i dont love him and i feel like i want to give him up for adoption. sometimes i find myself getting really angry and frustrated with him and i get edgy and snappy towards him. it also has alot to do with his father bailing on us before he was even born and me still having feelings for his father 2 years later and his father wantign nothing to do with us. sometimes i feel like i resent my child because of it and i feel hate towards him because of his father. i know its the PPD.. but really when will it end? therapy every week does nothing..
