He pretty much just started crying all the time, started feeling like he didn't want to hold the baby, and couldn't sleep at all.
He went down pretty fast.
One week he seemed over stressed and the next he couldn't function properly.
If you have any questions feel free to ask me xx
ANTI DEPRESSANTS ARE NOT ADDICTIVE AND NOT HORRIBLE!
They've turned my entire life around! I'm beginning to feel like me before PND again now.
Don't have an opinion unless it's an educated one sheesh! This is why people don't seek help!
Hi EveLouise. Just wanted to check in and see how you are going. I think that it was brave of you to write your thread yesterday, and I hope that you got some reassuring answers in here.
Have you checked out the private discussion area yet? It doesn't matter if you have a PND diagnosis or not. Sometimes I think we just have a "niggly" feeling that something isn't quite right, and it doesn't hurt to get it checked out, and also talk to women in a similar situation.
I know that a lot of the women in the private discussion area have seen your thread and would love to get to know you better.
EveLouise- how are you feeling?

When I was suffering from depression, I wanted to lie down on the train tracks and wait for the train to take me away. When someone has depression, it is a constant, bleak and aching void that doesn't let up, not even for a second and no amount of pampering and date nights can fix it.
You are very lucky to not have experienced clinical depression; everyone has "bad days" and yes, a night out and self pampering may brighten your mood (if you don't have depression, just "regular" blues), but for sufferers of depression/anxiety, most of the time medication and counselling is required.
@EVELOUISE: If someone could have given me any advice when I was at my lowest point with depression, it would be "it CAN and DOES get better". You just need to find what works for you, whether that be medication or counselling or both. The first step is to talk to your doctor. There is no shame in helping yourself and wanting better mental health. Best of luck
