Why is my 10-year-old C-section scar aching now?

For the last few months (and no: I am absolutely not pregnant) one side of my ancient C-section scar has hurt when I sneezed or moved too suddenly. Sort of a sharp twinge. Occasionally the whole scar will hurt and I am afraid to stretch out or twist too abruptly for fear of hurting or possibly tearing something . You are not my doctor! I will go to a doctor!

I'm new to depression. Please help.

Yesterday I admitted aloud to my husband that I think I am suffering from depression. This came after a lengthy argument over something trivial. Lately I have been feeling very, very irritated at the littlest things, and I feel like I could tear the world apart. [more inside]

YANMT, but where to start with postpartum gender identity issues?

I'm about 6 weeks postpartum with my first child, and feeling some very strange things that definitely aren't normal but also don't seem like PPD.
