Has anyone experienced anger after having a child? I feel like I talk down to everyone... get right mad at my 4yo son... and I've also got 2 step daughters 10 & 16. Could it be a form of PPD? I feel out of control, overwhelmed and forgetful. My newest is 3 months old.

Could use some encouragement.

Instead of thinking it must be a medical issue and need dangerous drugs, perhaps you are actually experiencing anger for a reason. It sounds like you either need help or more quality time with the new baby. There also are natural hormonal changes which should be manageable.

You can get better results without drugging yourself by going outside in the sun and moving with the new baby.

Also suggest to eat organic food and purified water because chemicals and hormones in the food supply magnify women's hormonal responses.

I spoke to my dr, was put on anto-depressants and told to speak to mental health.

It does sound like PPD. U might need some meds to help you. I had PPD really bad after my first child and the dr put me on meds and about after 6 months I was fine and was able to come off them.

I know exactly how you feel! I find that closing my eyes and stepping out on the porch for a min seems to help. But here lately there has been way to much family drama and the overwhelmed feeling is taking over. I also feel that it is messing with my weight! I need advice on weight loss and stress!

Kelly - do you mean birth control? I have been on it for 3 weeks if that's what you mean. But other than that, I am on nothing. I spoke to my fiance about it yesterday, I feel sooo terrible about it all. I told him I think I need to see someone about this.

That for sure could be a sign of PPD, maybe you should try to see an specialist to see if it is and what you can do about it.
