i'm pleased you got help michy and that your starting to feel better. I do the not eating for days thing, not on purpose, i just kinda forget or don't fancy anything.
I forgot to mention that i have an extremely under active thyroid and although its been treated a known side effect is depression so this might contribute to things. I haven't felt very well physically since the delivery and i went to the doc yesterday and it turns out i have a interuterine infection that has caused my dizzyness, nausia and other stuff so wen i get rid of that i might start to feel a bit better (or i could be clutching at straws lol) xx
I felt paranoid all day yesterday
but today i feel ok am a bit down but i think that is due to the turning up this morning x
I think my tabs are starting to kick in at last av still been moody but nowhere near as bad as before x
Shifter how are you feeling
Can i just say thanks i dont no wat i would av done with out ALL of you
I'm having a bit of a weepy day today. Am trying to sort out getting my hospital notes and hire an IMW to go over them with me to look at what happened and analyse if things could have been different or not. It's something I really want to do even though I know it will be emotionally draining. Been going over things a bit this morning and getting upset about it
How do you get your hospital notes hun ? am just wondering if it will help me as i had complications with sam and nobody told me wat went wrong apart from my womb wouldnt contract but am sure its something else as my placenter was really low and i think it was that that caused the complications
Hope your feeling better sooon hun and you get the answers you want
Some GPs can initiate things for you if you ask them about it and they can arrange for someone at the hospital to go over them with you. But I sent a letter to the maternity unit to request a photocopy. I don't need to talk to anyone at the hospital, I understand everything that happened, what I need is an impartial eye to advise whether the best possible decisions were made at the time. The hospital staff would obviously just say yes, rather than cast a critical eye over the events.
An IMW will cost money but I think it's worth spending if it helps me come to terms with what happened and be able to face the possibility of having another baby in the future, as right now I simply don't trust my body any more. (Most women are scared of childbirth before they ever do it, I had to go through everything I knew to avoid before I got scared!)
I think im going to ask the doc thanks for the advice hun
i think i just need answers cos they told me i couldnt have anymore babies as my womb wasnt strong enough to carry a baby full term and its too risky to say if i would ever make it over 13weeks
so i think i just need to see it for myself if that makes sence hun
Hi there, I have just recently been diagnosed with PND, I am unsure of how long this has been going on as my partner says i havent really been "right" ever since my daughter was born but it has certainly gotten worse since Lucas arrived.
I went to see the GP and explained how i was feeling, i felt a little bit silly and guilty and anxious about it but I managed to explain how i felt and am now recieveing the support i need, I feel much better knowing that some of the things i have been experiencing are down to PND an not just me going insane....
My symptoms have been:
Feeling down and deeply depressed 60-80% of the time
Wild Mood Swings
Terrified that Lucas will die suddenly
Feeling like harming myself & attempting to do so occasionally
Not feeling like doing anything
Not feeling good enough
Not feeling like eating or sleeping/eating loads and wanting to sleep loads
