I know it should be an easy answer but I don't know. There are times when I just can't take things. Me and my bf have so many problems it seems like. I am also 17 and still in school my daughter is a lil over 4 weeks old. A few days before I had her I found out my best friend killed himeself I couldn't make it to the funeral b/c I went into labor. I never really had the chance to say goodbye.
I have to decide if I want to live with my bf which I will be unhappy and uncomftorble or with my parents where I will be unhappy but comfortable. We are trying to get our own place and will hopefully have one by the end of the month. There was a week where I didn't have an appetite, I barely ever sleep b/c she doesn't sleep through the night that well, then I have to get up with her in the morning. Some days it just seems like I don't want to do it anymore. I just want to give up I don't have any thoughts about doing anything to my daughter. I just want to know how do I know? there is just so much I have to deal with who shouldI call about it, my obgyn? Someone help!
Just stay calm and remember that the infant doesn't care where you go as long as it has it's mother.You can talk to anyone who you feel will listen. Many people prefer to talk over the internet so that they don't have to look someone in the eyes. My advice is to talk to either a best friend or Doctor. A best friend you can talk to in confidence and nobody can understand PPD more than an OBGYN (who is required to keep your secrets). I have had just regular depression problems and didn't talk to anybody; i turned into someone i don't like. Don't make my mistake!!! Be open, talk, the PPD will go by so much quicker.
