    Hay hun. You really could be suffering with PND and it can make u feel physically ill sometimes. I have honestly had my times when i was convinced that there was something wrong with me. Then i was diagnosed with PND and go some help and felt a world different both mentally and physically.

    Hope you feel better soon. Its such a hard thing to go through xx

    Hi, Sorry your struggling at the moment. I am having similar issues but mainly concerns surround my son. I lost my first baby who was born pre-term two years ago and for a while I was consumed by grief, now after the birth of my second son I find the nightmares which were and still are very graphic are returning to haunt me.

    I am arguing a lot with my husband, I am in a state over childcare - I worry about leaving my son when I HAVE to return to work, I feel a mess physically - just one day to wash my hair would be nice! emotionally I probably feel just as bad.

    hiya... i can totally relate to you when u say u cant swallow and stuff i didnt think i would be diagnosed with PND but i was and its horrible... im 4months postnatal now and im only startin to feel better now..

    after my little one was born i had really bad separation anxiety to the point i didnt want anyone comin to our house incase they wanted to hold my baby it was horrible the feelings i had in my stomach were just out of control... i didnt want to leave the house incase people would judge me on the way my son was dressed etc coz if he wasnt dressed the way they said he should be then i was a bad mother.. i started the whole couldnt swallow thing couldnt catch a breath and just felt like each day was a struggle and i hated even getting ready ...also i hated my oh for going to work i resented him coz he could get away from everything and i couldnt

    my health visitor noticed changes in me and i also noticed there was something wrong as i was pushing everyone away from me and i started to behave like having a baby was a bad thing and not a blessing..

    my doctor prescribed me counselling and antidepressants and its took a good few months but i feel great, i still get my bad days had one today were i just felt like crying and i felt panicky and i didnt move from my pjs all day but im now more positive and know 2moros another day and itll b a better day x

    I know exactly how u feel - every single symptom but mine was from general anxiety due to stressful life periods. I guess not post pardem depression. I took xanax or a similar drug when I needed it and to be honest - the very fact that I had the drug w/ me at all times really helped knowing if I was having an attack like that I COULD take the drug. I also drank alot of wine if i didnt tax xanax(i know sounds bad --- but I managed to pass 2 bar exams and finish law school so I guess it was OK) in the afternoon night while I did something relaxing - which was cooking long elaborate meals for hours slightly hammered. I started counseling and it was nice getting it off my chest to someone but I stopped b/c she was $$$ she also gave me some sort of anti-anxiety(anti-depressant in smaller doses) medicine but I am not sure if it had time to kick in b4 I stopped due to plan of pregnancy. Thank God, my body kept me relaxed enough during pregnancy b/c I couldn't do any of theses things to calm myself. I am not sure if it is starting to come back now. Anyway, the point of all this information was to tell you what I did to cope - not saying it was the right thing - but this is what I did. Good luck and I am truly sorry you are suffering b/c I know how it is.
