And the Big Bad Depression Just Keeps Knocking Me Back

I think I am having antepartum depression. For the last week, I have been experiencing my full (acknowledged and documented) symptoms of depression and am growing increasingly concerned that this may be an issue AFTER the birth. The two sure signs: lack of sleep and lack of appetite. Not to mention the crying jags and the heavy, heavy feeling in my heart. Not quite anxiety (which I used to refer to as "my sinking feeling" before I knew what it was), but getting there.

I haven't felt this way in so long that it almost feels like a stranger to me now. I'm so glad that it has come skulking back to remind me.
