But, for some reason about 2 months now i cant get out of my head about me hurting my daughter like molesting,beating and abandoning her but mostly molesting her i dont know if its where i was brought up in a bad home and i just feel bad for thinking about it so much but mostly the reason y i do is bc i just done see how people can usually do it. the reason i feel so bad is bc i dont feel like me thinking about molesting my daughter should be on my mind so much and me thinking about hurting her bc i never would. she is my world and i jus feel bad about thinking about it ya know. i dont know why i do eventhough shes 6 months already can i be going thru postpuram depression?
