Some of you may no that over the last couple of days have been really hard for me
I went to the docs earlier this week and he said i have PND he as given me some tablets and said i need some counciling he also said id been suffering from it for a bit and that if id have gone to see him sooner i wouldnt feel this bad
This is not the first time i have suffered from it as i had it with robyn even before she was born that was 3 years ago
But it is the first time iv been this bad and hope its the last
If anyone want to talk then am sure there is a lot of ppl on here who will help
This thread is such a good idea, thanks Aly!!
I hope people can read this and realise that PND is nothing to be ashamed of and the sooner you get help the better.
A little introduction about me..
I have suffered from depression and more lately suffered PND. I have been on anti- depressants for about 3 months and i feel i am recovered, although i do have the odd bad few days
My Symptoms included :
Constantly feeling down
Anxious and nervousness
Didnt like being left alone
No interest in going out with friends and Socialising
Self Diagnosing myself with random illnesses
PND is a horrible illness and i urge anybody who thinks they may be suffering to seek medical help, its the best thing i ever did!!
I hope we can all help eachother through this thread x x
This is my second bout of depression. I have been on medication for bout 18 months this time round. Luckily I don't seem to have gone much worse since LO has been born so don't think I suffer from PND. I used to self harm a bit too. I think this thread could really help us all. Maybe Wobbles could make it a sticky? x
Ohh i didnt think to put up the syptoms
nessajane you have all the feeling i had apart from one and that one is
I kept thinking my kids would be better off without me
i do agree about not be ashamed of it cos that is one of the main things that kept going over in my mind as i thou if i went to the docs he would just tell me to get a grip and pull myself together
so please go to the doc as soon as you think its any kind of depression as the earlier they catch it the easier it is to treat x
The worst thing anybody can tell you is 'to pull yourself together' I think thats were people who havnt had depression or know alot about it think you can just pick yourself up, My OH would tell me to snap out of it but anybody who has or had depression will now thats it just not possible x
I think this thread is a great idea. Im too suffering from PND although i believe i was depressed along while before baby came along but didnt want to admit it and it just got alot worse after he was born.
If anyone else thinks they are depressed please speak to somebody or your doctor, Speaking to my doctor and getting help was the best thing i could of done!
I was depressed hun before robyn came along it started wen i was 5 months preg
Iwent to the docs about it and he said you cant get depressed before baby is born so then it was 9 months before i went back and he told me to get some rest and not to worry x needless to say i changed docs and got the help i needed
