    Can I just start by saying I had pnd and ptsd after my son was born. Just because you have been diagnosed with this under no circumstances does it automatically mean that you are going to hurt your child and that you shouldn't be trusted with them.

    Yes what he has done is classed as dv. I suggest that you both need to attend counseling whether it be together or separately so you both can work through what is causing this behavior from him and also your feelings of self doubt caused by his actions. This needs to be done before it escalates any further.

    If you still feel in danger than an escape plan is of your utmost priority.

    Thanks for your comment. Can I ask how you overcame your PND? Are you now able to lead a 'normal' life? I just feel like I don't know what that feels like anymore. Almost a foreign concept.

    I also have PND, depression the list goes on. I always flare my DH up. I'm insecure etc due to this but he would always say no I trust you with your babies, your a great mum. Even if we split.

    Do you get help? Where are you located? I attend PND work shops/similar to mothers group but for mums with PND. It's very helpful. send me pm.

    I would also say it's abuse. And attending your child nurse for help/ you could recurve help on both things

    My ds is now 19 months old and the first 12 months or so of his life are a blur to me to be honest.

    I overcame pnd and ptsd by working through the things that would cause flare ups and bad days. The biggest thing for me was getting help for my traumatic birth experience as that was my main trigger. I sought professional help quite early as I was lucky that a lovely mach nurse picked up on how I was feeling and that I wasn't coping. The professional assistance really really helped me.

    Please know that there is light at the end of the tunnel

    PND diagnosis here, too. I'm still relatively early days treatment-wise, but feeling a lot better. At no point did I ever feel that I was a danger to myself or my son, but I definitely knew I wasn't able to be the mummy I wanted to be.
    Medication, psych/counselling, pnd support group, social networking have all helped. I learnt to let go of some things (having a spotless house, preparing and cooking all DS's food from scratch, constantly doing loads of laundry). I've also forced myself into doing things I used to do, so I felt more like me - occasionally putting on make up when I go out, painting my nails, getting my hair done, reading, planning weekend activities, getting out of the house. Not back to normal yet, but feeling a lot more focused and less on edge.
