I was staying to see a GP due to your feelings since giving birth, I always think that it is best to speak to your GP if your having depressive thoughts purely because I know how quickly you can sink with depression.
Oh absolutely! I completely agree.
I don't think it sounds like he is cheating either but I'd be more concerned it could cross over into an emotional affair, which in my opinion is more worrying than just a sexual fling with someone you don't even know. Both are bad of course but it is near impossible to change feelings once they develop.
Of course it is probably nothing but if he has cheated before and knows how insecure you are feeling at the moment it just seems a bit insensitive of him.
I don't think he should necessarily give her up but maybe if you tell him how it makes you feel he could at least curb it a bit. He sounds really caring and like he loves you a lot, so I'm sure just thinking about how it makes you feel before he says things to her wouldn't be too much to ask
Oh and I agree with above posters who said that you should go and see a doctor if you think you are depressed. But that also doesn't mean you have to automatically dismiss every feeling you have as being "depressed" or "paranoid". I had depression and often wondered the same thing, if my depression/anxiety making me feel threatened for no reason. But I think it was actually the other way around... I was feeling threatened for good reason and so it made me feel anxious and depressed.
But in saying that I have also had depression that did change my feelings and made me very irrational for no good reason. But I think in your case you do have a good reason to feel the way you do.
OP, I would go and speak to a psychologist. In a couple of sessions, you'd be able to understand what is the real issue behind your mood swings and how to work on them.
I have had similar issues - I would react in a different way that I would myself find completely silly and not logical.
My psychologist helped me understood what was going on and how to get my mind, heart and body in the same happy place
IMO I think you feel insecure with the relationship your DP has with this woman (and that's fair enough).
Anytime you feel tired/stressed out/hormonal, jealousy or tantrums will rear their ugly heads and make you feel miserable
First you need to look at what you really feel about your DH relationship with this lady. Then you need to take steps to help you feel better overall (healthy eating, exercising, good sleeping patterns, socializing with friends, new interests, etc). All this as an impact on you feel about yourself and in return on how you feel about others.
Good luck with everything, it wont take much to feel better trust me xxxx
