Hi Ma'am,

I can understand your present situation and I could feel the suffering. Actually, postpartum periods are very stressful because you have to take care of baby along with your health.Because your unable to cope up with stress, your slowly entering into postpartum related stress disorders mostly postpartum blues or postpartum depression.Because of disease process itself, your suffering with those loneliness,crying spells,decreased self confidence, hopeless ideas. I advise you to consult a psychiatrist immediately and start treatment. Mostly you will be prescribed with antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy depending upon your present situation.I also advise you to go for walking in the morning, watch humor in television, chat with old friends which all act as stress relievers and help you in coping with present situation still better.

Take Care
