I'm not sure where to start. I have thought for several months that I have PND, but every time I think i should do something about it, I have a really good couple of weeks and I think maybe I'm just tired and how I am feeling is a normal part of motherhood.
My daughters are 3 1/2 years and 20 months. I go through periods where I worry about everything, am awful to my husband, lose patience with my girls and lack motivation. I also cry a lot and get really angry with myself for doing so as there is no reason for it - I have a loving, supportive husband who would do anything for me and 2 (generally) happy, healthy girls and a wonderful extended family.
Whenever I take the girls to the doctor I think I should mention it, but then I think I'm being silly and so have never actually spoken up about it.
If I was to be diagnosed with PND, what happens from there? Do I get put on medications? Or do I have to try and find time to see a counsellor?
If anyone has any advice for me it would be appreciated.
