No I don't know- I got frustrated and handed the comp over to my hubby to "fix" and that's what he said; he's not here at the moment so I'll have to wait until he gets back. Probably I've quoted him wrong. I'll get there eventually.

Wow 80% ticked yes to PND I am sorry that it is so common and I am amazed it is so common.
Callalilly thank you for posting your story, I hope to see you around the forum and private area. The other lovely ladies who posted here are all part of my support network, amazing ladies who have been such a help to me since that area opened.
I have suffered from depression all my life, it has been very significant in determining the course of my life. I self medicated with alcohol and drugs all through my 20's and beyond. Life with my DH is the first time I have experienced stability and peace. Then the kids came along and PND hit. It was never dramatic for me, it was insidious, it snuck up on me until I was in a constant state of misery, anger, frustration, anxiety, emotional eating, self-hatred and though I was never actually suicidal, I often daydreamed what-if scenarios. I wasn't diagnosed until my youngest was 18mo. I have been having treatment for a year now and feel much better tho i still have bad periods.
i think a lot of women must suffer along with all these negative emotions because they feel that their symptoms are not bad enough to warrant help. I say if its bad enough to be having a significant on your home life and happiness, its bad enough to seek help.

it just occurred to me why the %s are so high on the poll. there is no option for 'none of the above'. Would it make sense to add that option?

Thanks for sharing- I don't find it hard to talk about this stuff because I'm so used to being poked and prodded about it, but I know how hard it is for most, so kudos to you I've finally got to join the private discussion area, so I'll see you in there

l have never felt so alone as l did when l was suffering from pnd, but now l realise l was never alone and always had people there to listen l just needed the confidence to talk! There is nothing worse then crying non-stop for no reason and not being able to explain it!

I had PND after the birth of #1. I talked to a phycologist when he was 6 weeks old and suspected it... she told me I wasnt depressed - i was just over tired. It took me 18 months and holding him over a balcony to go to another doctor - thank goodness something 'clicked' in my when i was holding him over the balcony and I went to the doctor and got put on medication. Hes now 6 and the most amazing child <3 I have had 2 children since him, and no PND - pregnant with #4 now, and hoping to not get it again!

Antenatal Depression and Severe PND in 2002 when I had my daughter. Was hospitalised for months and died twice in the ICU as a result of my suicide attempt. Everyone was surprised I survived. My ex took my then 5 month old baby and DOCS agreed this was for the best. It was Hell on earth.
No Depression whatsoever before or after the birth of my son last year - obviously, the circumstances are very different.
This is a subject I feel very strongly about. If you feel you're suffering Antenatal Depression or PND, please talk to someone you trust and see your doctor without delay.
