I am wondering if I am suffering from PND? Johanna is 19.5 months old. Can you get PND at any time? Some of the things I am feeling are sad and depressed although I am not crying but feel lonely. I am irritable towards DH eg have a go at him for no apparent reason. I bottle my feelings up and then explode which is not fair on him as he loves me so much and I treat him like **** (sorry). I am starting to feel really upset as I type this . I am overweight and I know that this is getting me down. I find it really hard to find and keep friends and thus I am lonely. I take Johanna to playgroup every Tuesday except for school hols.
I have not sought medical advice although I did mention it at my 6 week check up and my GP brushed over it not really going into it by asking me questions.Who else can I see ? I am just wondering if it is PND or just plain depression. I sleep OK at night I wake up when Johanna wants a feed which seems to be every 2 hours and she only has like 10-15 minutes. If it is PND I am worried about going on to medication while b/f is it OK ?
