I saw my GP when my first DD was about 18months when I was suffering severe PND. He referred me on to a therapist.
On my first visit I told her of my intense rage and feelings of wanting to hurt my toddler, not an easy thing to own up to. She asked me what sort of things can set these feelings off, so I told her of an incident where DD had thrown around the clean, folded washing. She proceeded to give me hints and tips on how to get the washing put away quickly so DD couldn't get to it. Not once, in all my sessions did she address my rage.
In the end it took me seeing 6 different professionals in varying fields until I found someone who could actively help me with my feelings and behaviour. Sometimes, even when you want help, it can be hard to find. I only persevered because my loving and supportive DP kept encouraging me to seek help. If I had been on my own, I wouldn't have sought help, and that could have been disastrous.
