Are You Depressed?


April 17, 2010

Ask yourself about these questions to find out. In a recent Pediatrics study, researchers found that answering "most of the time" or "some of the time" to any question means you're at the risk for postpartum depression-even if you're not sad. "Many new moms feel like a certain amount of anxiety is normal," says Janelle Sheeder, an obstetrics and pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. "These questions help you distinguish normal anxiety from anxiety that could be problematic."

Do you blame yourself unnecessarily when things go wrong?

Do you feel scared or panicky without very good reason?

Have you been anxious or worried without very good reason?
