Well I was reading a few of the discussions since this is my first time using this type of therapy. I had my daughter, my first child, in May of 2007 and honestly I just haven't been right since. I love my child whole heartedly and has never had any thoughts of hurting her or myself. I'm just not happy with anything anymore. Before having the baby I never had any problems with myself or happiness. I just don't have the motivation or drive to really do anything anymore. I feel that since adding on the extra baby weight I'm ugly, unattractive, fat and just not up to par to other women my age. (I'm 23) So is this PPD or just low self-esteem that I'm experiencing? To my understanding PPD lasted in the first few months after child birth and here I am 15 months after delivery. I just thought that I could get some feedback from other women who may understand. If this is PPD how long is it suppose to last?
