Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

You seem to be going through a post-natal depression. Now, there are very good treatment options available for this and you don't have to be suffering in silence. You may need anti-depressant medication for a short while to help you overcome these symptoms. Alternatively, certain talking therapies like CBT can also help you effectively.

So, please consult a psychiatrist at the earliest and take help.

Wish you all the best.
