Hugs hun. I just spoke to my husband about you (hope that's ok) as he manages community services for our local council. He says you definitely qualify for help. Please reach out to your health nurse, gp or your council directly. You should be able to get help with childcare, cleaning etc.

I really struggled it adapt when I brought home ds2. There is one yr and ten days vetween them
Can't imagine how much worse it would be given what you and hugo have been through
Definately speak to your gp. There is help mentally and also physical day to day stuff.

I agree with seeking outside help if you feel comfortable about this. Or enlisting family members for help. Many of us mums think we are superwoman and like to tackle everything ourselves (me included). Please don't forget about yourself though. You're the backbone of your little family and you need to look after yourself so you can look after others.
I hope each day becomes easier and easier for you x

im not sure where abouts you are, but here locally for us, theres a service you can access for home help which is funded through our local council. If you have an admission to hospital (possibly even Emergency? I Forget the exact criteria...) and released you can get help at home for a while. They come assess your situation, and make an agreement with you. Maybe this could help??
My mum while staying with us last year broke one arm and badly sprained the other, leaving her unable to care for herself at all, she spent 2 days in hospital, then stayed with us for a few months (12wks?? until the cast came off)......She got someone to come help me (As i was caring for her - she couldnt even feed herself, wipe herself after the toilet, or shower, or give herself her insulin...) They funded someone to come shower her every 2nd day (I thin there was a minor fee for the showering) until she had the strength and mobility back in her arms to do it herself, and house help for 3hrs a week for 6-8wks. The home help was most definately free... They could iron, wash, hang washing, wipe things down, do dishes, sweep, mop, clean the bathroom/toilet, change beds/sheets, do shopping etc etc... and our lady was lovely
Im sure that would be a great help for you if theres something like this available in your area.

I rang my community nurse program to reschedule visit as I was in hosp with hugo so they are getting back to me. I went to GP and she said its hormones ummm ok? Yesterday I was so flustered I had to just sit in bedroom and tell hubby to p off. She didnt even care. So wtf! Need a different gp ugh. My best friends sister had hee baby same time so I haven't seen her which I semi understand but hardly any texts etc
I got a treadmill now so im hoping exercise helps with mood.

Yep. Get a second opinion.
You have been through more than enough to tip anyone over the edge.
Where are you in Adelaide?

I agree, time for a new GP. Even if it is just to get a referral to someone who you can talk to.

Hey Monnie, is your dd at daycare? I remember you posting a bit unsure about taking her out. It could be really beneficial to keep her in for a couple of days, not just for you but for her - to be around others kids, busy and playing is a joy for kids! It would give her a break from the home routine too. You're doing a flipping awesome job, keep up the exercise it really is so good for us. I've just started doing a 15min walk each evening, small but it feels beneficial.
