Does anyone struggle with OCD?

I'm 23 yrs old just had a baby. I've been beating myself up thinking I hurt my baby but can't remember. I need some support because I'm thinking I just am convincing myself I am a bad mother. When I had my first baby boy, I came down with a bad high fever and my son was hungry and I was so overwhelmed, just had an emergency c-section and I slapped him. He cried but I wasn't a very good mother than I was only 16. His father raises him but I do love him and now having this newborn I am scared to mess up and be a bad mom. So I feel I convince myself everything I do I feel I messing up. Can someone help me?!!!

Sounds like you could have a major case of post partum depression. You need to call your doctor right away and get some help. Also, if you have a support system, now is the time to use it. If you feel in any way you may harm your child, please ask someone else to watch him until you are able to get the help you need.
