So nice to know that I'm not alone - and even nicer to know that you found something that helped you get through it! I might have to look into primrose. And thank you for sending me those links. I did find the second one in my searches. My case seems to be pretty manageable. I also don't agree with taking meds so I know that I won't ever go that route. Thankfully I'm very good at understanding that what I'm feeling and experiencing is only hormonal and it is manageable. I know that it goes away when I'm done so I know that I can get through it.
I know that people don't understand it or think it's possible to feel that way and it not be PPD so I'm hoping that by posting this anyone else who is feeling this way and doesn't understand it can know that they aren't alone.
