Question

Question: is PPD an unexplainable depression or can it be brought on by situations?  I'm never really angry or depressed for no reason, but more from infuriating situations at home.  This triggers it then I just seem to spiral downwards from there and can't seem to get out.  Also, can it be prevelant in certain situations?  For example, I react more when I'm home but can somehow find a way to enjoy myself at work or my studio.  I think that may be why I don't consider myself depressed but more just fighting some life changes.

I believe it is a bit of both. I think my "depression" was triggered by a traumatic birth experience.

PPD is also hormonal though and unfortunatley has a lot to do with other factors such as lack of sleep, feeling overwhelmed and stress just to name a few. With that in mind, it makes sense to why you may feel better when you are not at home!

PPD and facing life changes I think goes hand-in-hand for a lot of us!
