Hi Mums, First post here,I was just wondering if someone (anyone!)could shed some light as I feel like I'm out of my mind! I have a 1 year old little boy . Since November things haven't been great, mental health wise. I am still suffering (gynaecologically speaking) after a tough birth and I don't think this has helped. My main question is ; have any of your PND symptoms manifested in a physical way as well as mental? I have had constant dizziness the last 8 months , I've seen a neurologist , have had mri , bp monitor fitted... All fine and normal. But this dizziness is constant and is so debilitating . No friends have gone through this so I feel like I'm the only one. I also get this feeling, daily , like a tingling feeling, like water or something crawling on me. Can anyone relate?

Iv seen a few topics from journalists looking to speak with women about PND. I just want to know if your a journalist please reach out to let me know. I am happy to talk. The stigma needs to be removed. People need to understand PND is a real illness. Not something you can snap out of or get a grip. It’s not something anyone has the right to say how come you can’t cope when others can. I am happy to speak out. I have no shame in saying I suffered and I still suffer. Comments welcome

Subject: Returning to work with PND 4 Replies

  • Started by Anon on Mar 19, 2019
Hi ladies. I'm a mom of two, a little girl now 6 and little boy 4months old. I suffered so badly with my first and it wasn't until she was 6months old that I sought help from my gp and realised it was PND. We planned baby number 2 and I had a plan in place with my gp should this happen again and sure enough those feelings began to come back and I started on Strenaline and was doing fantastic. I felt I was being very pro active with my mental health and swore for the sake of my first born I would ensure I got help as soon as I noticed any signs. Now I'm beginning to feel very low, uninterested again (even though I'm on the max dose) and i feel all this is due to me having to return to work the end of next month. I dont feel mentally ready to juggle all this and go back to work and leave my kids, it's making me feel so so anxious. Any mom's in the same position?

Hey everyone, looking for a bit of help/advice from anyone who has gone through Post Natal Depression. I had my baby 5 months ago, everything from my pregnancy to birth was a breeze. Yet in the last few months I have been suffering terribly from Post Natal Depression. I feel so lost and alone, even though I have so much support around me. My partner contacted a doctor/public health nurse months ago at the 1st sign that there was something wrong, but I wouldn't attend as I didn't want to believe anything was wrong. Myself and my partner began to fight an awful lot, I became controlling, jealous, angry, anxious, insecure, the list goes on, to the point where he couldn't take it any longer and left. Now I feel so much more alone. It's killing the both of us to be apart. I have made an appointment with a doctor and I cannot wait to go. How long does it take to start feeling better? I need to get my relationship and family back if it's not too late. It's a horrible illness and my heart goes out to anybody else feeling this way x

Its my second child and I was so looking forward to his arrival and I end up with Postnatal Depression. He is four months old and the happiest little fellow only cries to be fed. I feel so terrible so anxious, cant eat or sleep, now I feel guilty as I shouldnt have this as my baby so good. found it hard to go to GP and admit that something was wrong, I am on medication but still finding it really hard. The days are so long and I feel so down all the time, I really try to pretend that I am ok when anyone is around but pay for it afterwards. Please somone tell me it will go away, I am missing out on so much.

I see that the support group have a coffee morning every month. I would like to go but not sure what to expect, is there big signs up saying Postnatal Depression Coffee Morning. Can I just pop in for a while? Can I bring my baby?

So my son is 16wks and I'm starting to struggle. My husband thinks it might be PND, I'm not convinced but I appreciate it might not be something that I could see. Does anyone know could I contact my public health nurse or does it have to be the GP? I'm not scheduled back to the nurse for another couple of months.

Hi everyone I was wondering if anyone here took antidepressants during pregnancy? Or are there any online forums I can join to chat about it? I recovered from pnd last time (I actually had prenatal depression too but didn't get it treated). I'm 27 weeks along and have done everything I can to manage. My psychiatrist has reassured me that it is okay to take the antids but I feel if I could chat to someone who went through with taking the meds I'd feel better.

Hi, this has to be the hardest thing i have done. I had my baby boy 21 days ago and now on medication. I have support but my brain won't let me relax. All i want to do is run away.
