Yes, you could be depressed, or otherwise troubled by anxiety, possibly post-natal depression. Try to see at least a good local GP< preferably a shrink, for a proper assessment and treatment advice. Visiting your parents for a preak could well be helpful, and maybe if they can share some of the load of caring for the baby, you'll have a bit of a rest, too. But it does sound like Depression, and deserves proper treatment for the sake of you, your child and your husband

SN, depression interferes with your ability to think straight and solve problems. So getting treated for depression will already help you to look at the situation differently. A psychologist can help you come up with different ways of thinking about and solving your problems.

Go see a doc that you don' t know. Turn your chair around, and then speak ' face to back' . :)

I know it sounds silly.

Please know, that there is nothing to be ashamed of.
