"Wow. I don't think it's right to say that someone who's depressed is acting like a jerk because you don't like the way that their symptoms manifest. Changes in sexual behavior and drinking are absolutely symptoms of depression. Do you think this about all people with PPD, or just men? Would you ever in a million years tell a depressed new mom to "woman up"? This came across to me as really sexist and judgmental." You Say: "They discuss what can be signs of depression, but they never give any insight into how to tell the difference between the two. So it is all lumped together as depression when these are mostly things that could also just be signs of a shitty dad."
