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
