    Default Postnatal depression the second year

    My DS is now 14 months old when he was 2 weeks I was diagnosed with mild pnd. As he gets older I feel as though I'm getting worse and I'm wondering is it normal? I constantly feel distant and am numb to most emotional feelings the only time I "feel" anything is if it a really strong. My DS had reflux and cmpi couple that with having depression from the age of 13 and the loss of 2 children and it was a recipe for disaster. I'm also having regular anxiety attacks and I don't feel as though I can tell my DP about any of it. I just don't know what to do.

    Big hugs xx I'm thinking if maybe your treatment isn't working if you are feeling worse.

    Hugs to you... Are you on any meds currently? Maybe a trip to your GP to discuss and either get on some, or change them?
    I had pnb diagnosed when my boy was 4 months and a change of meds and seeing a psychologist helped.
    As hard as it is, try and speak to dh, you'll need his support the most x

    Thanks ladies I'm not in any one town very long but I am long enough to see a doctor so I think I will. The hardest part is feeling at though everything I worked so hard for is falling apart especially the bond with my children.
