Yes, congratulations are indeed in order! Great job on bringing a beautiful new life into the world.:)
You are just now starting to recover from a huge physical and mental marathon...so giving yourself time to adjust...and not 'future tripping' about
feeling this way indefinitely is really important...
...because you WILL start to feel more like yourself again with time and getting past the postpartum period.
Still, your plan to seek help in general is a solid one...and one you can, and I'm sure will, follow up with when the time is right.
For now, know that most of what you are going through is pretty typical for a new and exhausted mom.:)
Keep us posted as you can...and let us know when you make the steps toward treatment, so we can cheer you on!
For now, use our self help suggestions...and enjoy your beautiful baby.:)
