Swimming is really good therapy for all the things that you mention, you can even swim while not being 100% physically. Talk to somebody you trust, it can be a friend, family member or even a professional.
Life is short, enjoy it!

Having a new addition can be stressful. One key thing is sleep; for the baby and parents. Lack of sleep can lead to depression & anxiety. One thing the wife and I did was to take shifts. I'd take care of the baby early morning since I'd be up anyhow. She would take care of him late evening/night (she's a night owl anyhow). The rest of the time we share responsibility. It meant I had to quit gaming and messing around on the computer for a bit. But you have to give up something. That child is THE highest priority to both of you. Whatever it takes.
For the injury part, swimming is a great idea if you can. No impact. Check with your doctor to see what they can recommend.

Seek medical advice, that's not giving in that's fighting back, a lot of depression is caused by hormone imbalance & can be easily rectified with the correct prescribed medication. Just remember taking the tablets isn't giving on its fighting back!!! Good luck. At the end of the day if you had flu you would take beechams or lemsip to feel better, so have the same attitude towards this & you'll feel better in no time, the medication doesn't have to be forever, just long enuf to get you back on track ;-) Don't forget to keep working out with jefit to release the "feel good" endorphins
