Talk to your doctor: Emo in the midteens is not unusual, between hormones, boys and other life stresses. If you are already on you own, that suggests there have been serious family issues, although some teens who are bipolar create the stresses unknowingly. Talk to your doctor, avoid alcohol and drugs which complicate the problem, and find an adult you can confide in. Many of us have been there, tho years ago.

Is anger a symptom of postpartum depression?

Yes: A lot of women don't feel so much sad as angry or scared during postpartum depression. If you are having anger that is getting in the way of your daily living or affecting your relationships, you should talk to your doctor right away. Don't be scared to ask. Postpartum depression is common and there is help.

How can I manage the negative emotions associated with giving birth to a preemie?

Talk about it...: These feelings can be normal. I recommend that you discuss your feelings openly with your partner, family & friends. Often talking about your feelings helps. If that isn't making you feel better talk to your md. Mom's of premature babies often feel guilty about the early birth - even when they did nothing wrong. If symptoms persist talk to your md and be screened for possible postpartum depression.

Yes generally: In general yes however sonographers are frequently trained specially for kids while nearly every sonographer knows how to perform on adults...There are technical differences....Pediatric echos are usually interpreted by pediatric cardiologists.

Same or different: No one is the same so their symtoms will be slightly different but generally they will have similar symptoms.
