Hello, Sorry about this mental state you find yourself in. With first child, this is expected and it would be best if you get into a self-help group of similar moms. Weekly support meets and discussions could help a lot. Also discuss with your physician about a possible drug support for you if badly required at times, if baby is not breast-feeding. Meanwhile you could also try meditation and other similar stress-coping techniques, preferably learned from some expert.
