It took me some time to admit that I am not well. I am supposed to be the joyful new mother as expected, not a depressed, sad, angry mother. My beautiful boy is 7 months old and I feel like I am spiraling down into darkness, deeper every day. I cry most of the time - over nothing! Am extremely irritated and angry at who knows what. I feel numb and depressed and the harder I try to be my old self again the worse if gets.
So I completed the questionnaire and scored 86. Now I have to figure out what to do. It is not easy admitting that I need help. It is like admitting that I failed in the most basic and wonderful tasks of life – being a mother. What do I do now?
