I am new to this support group and am desperate for help. I have been sufferng from PPD for approx 7 weeks. My son is 7 weeks old.

Saw a psychiatrist yesterday and she is getting me on some meds so hopefully it will help. I have had thoughts of self harm. I had a knife in my hand the other day and thought about cutting myself! I have never ever had those thoughts before. I love love love my children but do not like them 80% of the time. Don't know if anybody can relate.
