    Forgot to say that maybe some counseling would help. I'm looking into it for myself. I had post traumatic stress and post natal depression from my birth experience and I really can't wait to talk to someone about it.

    I've thought so much about this - where/when is the point where I admit I need help to deal with it all. Can't deny the trauma of my five day old baby suddenly being in PICU and brain surgery! I'm slowly beginning to feel like I'm getting on topmof things - definitely have many mAny down days but I'm beginning to learn that they pass. Actually I don't even know how to start the process of getting some help! I'm always here for a vent or sympathetic ear if you need one!!!

    Hi radio, go to you gp and get a referral. Therapy has been a huge help for me.

    Thanks radio, same goes for you too! I'm always here if you need a vent or having a bad day.
    Those feelings are such a burden to carry around on your own and to me it felt like no one could possibly understand what I was feeling. There were so many times when I just felt so alone. I try talking to my hubby about it but he just doesn't understand and says "well lucky he's here now" he just doesn't get it. I know I need help because I just want to talk and talk about it but I don't. I hold it in because I think my family is sick of hearing it and to be honest, when I do open up to them I come away feeling disappointed because I expect it to help me in some way but it just doesn't because they don't understand the intensity and depth of those feelings (not their fault at all). The other thing is, I want to give bub a sibling but I'm so traumatised from his birth that I'm petrified its going to happen again. I know I can't possibly have another baby until I've dealt with it properly.
    Yes the 'wait and see' is sooo frustrating because in the meantime you can't do anything but worry.
    As mentioned above, just go to your gp and get a refferel. And thanks for starting this thread. It's helping me too!
