Postpartum depression

Definition from Wikipedia: Postpartum depression (PPD), also called postnatal depression, is a form of clinical depression which can affect women, and less frequently men, after childbirth.

Symptoms:
  • Sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Low self-esteem
  • Guilt
  • Inability to be comforted
  • Exhaustion
  • Emptiness
  • Anhedonia
  • Social withdrawal

Do I suffer this PPD? I think i got most of the symptoms, and I am really angry at somebody right now. GRRR..
