Do you think it's possible to have post partum rage as opposed to
depression? What do you think it means if I have dreamt of both of my
(deceased) grandmothers the past 3 nights? How is the baby 4 weeks
old already? How will I function when Hub is in CA next week? How
will I survive til Saturday when I get to go out by myself for the

You will survive, babe. Just remember what Swistle says and think of the "after". There will be an after when you don't feel crazy and everything will end up fine. You can do it!

I don't know the answer to most of these, but the answer to the survival one is chocolate.

You can do it!

And rage can be a way depression manifests. Or was that a rhetorical question? :)

As to the first question, I think anything is possible when you're dealing with post-baby hormones. And you WILL survive. But how, I'm not sure yet.

I suppose it's possible. But you'll be OK. You have all of us to complain to next week if you need. Or if you need more, e-mail me. You'll get through this. Also...that baby is NOT allowed to be 4 weeks old already! That's just impossible. Wow!

4 weeks; how fast time goes.

I'm with you~my dh just left for 3 days in NC. Email me if you need to!

I wonder if rage can be a symptom of depression? It certainly can be a hormone-related thing. And an exhaustion thing.
