maybe baby blues?
my daughter is 5 months old and i want to know if i can still get "baby blues". Most of the time i feel overwhelmed and i almost never enjoy anything anymore. I feel like a o.k mommy, but not as good as what i would like to be. I feel very tired and i mostly have no patience. Do u think i am depressed and do u think i need some kind of medication?

You're allowed to get some form of "Baby Blues" well after the birth, and surely at 5 months. See a good local Gp or shrink for assessment, as to whether there is Depression present, and what treatment would help best. Medication may well help, as could counselling
