This PND is a terrible illness, feel so lonely no one to talk to no family around. My Husband works long hours and I feel I cant be worrying him with my problems. Dont know how to help myself, the thoughts just keep going around in my head.

Have had terrible Post natal Depression for the last months and really worried that it will have an effect on my baby. there are days that I just cant smile and others where I cant stop crying. I feel so guilty and am so afraid that this will effect him in some way.

I have 3 kids had PND on second and just told have it again, I am so afraid to go on Medication as I hated the side effects. I was so sure that I would be ok this time thought I had everything covered, I feel so let down.

Hi, my baby is 8 months now and I just feel so bad I can't even explain it its just bad I feel bad and empty all the time. Everyone just calls me a moan and a crank but I just have the urge to rip clumps form my hair and smash my head against a wall ( I don't actually go through with it) I havnt told anyone how I'm feeling and nobody ever asks. If they did I know I'd break down in front of them. My partner has found me crying in the dark a few times but he just believes me when I say I just read a sad story and leaves me to it. I've no ill feelings towards my baby I love the bones off her so that's why I'm afraid to say out loud I have pnd incase it ever gets used against me ( not that it would it's just what I think) i would happily tell a doctor and take tablets but would the tablets turn me into a zombi? I don't want that but I don't want these feelings anymore :( I can't afford counselling

I have two kids,and after having our 2nd I didn't have the same instant feelings as first time round. She had severe colic and I literally slept on a couch with her on my chest for 3 months straight. Things all improved and I am so lucky with them both. But for the majority of the last 12 months (she's now 2) I am feeling extremely low, no motivation, suffer mood swings and find myself being so irritated by things that have never bothered me before. I also get bad cabin fever being at home and find my days so mundane, I used to be really outgoing and bubbly but feel like a totally different person. Is it possible this could be postnatal depressed so late on?? I love my girls, but feel like I want to escape most days and am slowly crumbling.

I am a new mom the past 2 months. Single mother, as father refuses to believe it's he's child and refuses to take DNA test. Currently living back at home with my parents trying to find a place to live on the HAP scheme, not having any luck. All this while being very depressed and upset. Easily the hardest thing I have ever gone through and still going through. On medication but doesn't seem to be working. Will it ever stop 😔

I had my baby 2 years ago, I never really accepted I had PND until he was 1. It was an incredibly difficult time as he had reflux, a problem with his neck after the long labour and we also moved house. I blamed all of these things and thought it would pass.
I feel like I never got the bonding time with him and still struggle to enjoy my time with him. It can feel like a effort some of the time. How do I move forward and make up for lost time ? I don't have much support around me, my husband is amazing ! My friends all had babies around the same time and had lovely experiences which made me back away from them. I don't know how to move forward and let go of the feelings I have. I have a older teenager too and it was just such a lovely experience having her. I know it shouldn't feel like this and it makes me so sad to not have the same feelings this time.
