Six weeks is the magic number for post pardum. I had post pardum right when I went back to work. I went from spending every minute of the day breast feeding and caring for my boy to pumping and gone for 11 hours...get help now...I waited too long and ended up not sleeping all night and trying to function at work on no sleep...then afraid to go home because I was so overwhelmed with being responsible for my little boy. I had to know what he was going to eat at 6 months old...I had every medicine known to mankind...fever/tooth/gas I was terrified he would need something that I could not provide. I spent 35 yrs being responsible for just me and all of a sudden this little boy depending on me overwhelmed and scared the crap out of me. By the time I sought help I had lost 50 lbs...not the good way. They put me on anti depressants and anti anxiety (because anti depressants cause anxiety) when you go if they try to dose you make sure you receive all of the information...it takes a week to a week and a half to kick in and start working and the depression/anxiety gets worse then all of a sudden its back to normal, but you cannot be impatient...I was...I wanted to be better right now and when I wasn't I flipped out. I finally got a doctor that told be the turn time for meds to work. I didn't like that it took that long, but was so glad to know upfront that I wouldn't magically be all better. If you feel it now don't be afraid to tell your doctor.it is more common than you know

Just say I didn't thing I did but as more time goes by I realise I do. Do not be ashamed. You are NOT crazy! It happens to many women....You need help to deal with it and your doc can help sweetie.
