6. “You are disconnected from others”
It feels like there is an invisible line between you and other people. When friends and family visit you, you don’t feel like you are a part of their world. You feel like an outsider listening to their conversations.
These are just some of the symptoms of postpartum depression. Every mom is different and may experience some or more than what were listed here. So what is the next step? Seek help. Inform your partner, your family, and friends. Discuss your feelings with your doctor. Psychotherapy, medication and both are usually used to treat postpartum depression. Don’t be afraid to speak out and get help. There are also online support groups for couples. The Internet is a great resource in getting information and help needed for moms who suffer from postpartum depression.
