What does it feel like to have postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety?  What are the symptoms?  How do you know when you have it?

We’re going to talk about the signs of postpartum depression and anxiety, but in “plain mama English,”  We won’t use words like hypomania or dysthymia or psychomotor agitation — the kind of terms you might see elsewhere.  We will use the words moms hear in their heads when they think about what the heck is happening to them. Words that make sense.
