Seek treatment ASAP: It sounds like you may need medication for post-partum depression soon to relieve your symptoms. Treating your depression is also best for a baby as well. Are you having any thoughts of suicide, plans, or intent to take your life? If so, please go to the emergency room right away. Your symptoms will improve with time, even though it doesn't seem like it right now. Usually 3 months without meds.
