Hello Ladies, I am a writer and mom of two who had postnatal depression after the birth of my son in Kerry. I am American and back living in the US but still go back and forth from Kerry as my husband is from the Dingle Peninsula. I am working on a book about my experience with PND and am looking for other moms who would be willing to talk with me, either by phone or email. I recently published a feature in the Irish Times that can be seen at the link below. The Ray Darcy show contacted me about my experience and is hoping to put together a radio show if they can find enough mom's to talk about their own experience. Terrifying prospect I know but I think it will help women. Please email me at colleenhennessy5@gmail.com or find me on FB if you are interested. https://www.irishtimes.com/life-and-style/health-family/postnatal-depression-i-should-have-memories-that-don-t-involve-rage-sadness-and-terror-1.3325850 More info about me and my work is on my website at colleenhennessy.com.

I have a 3 month old baby and a toddler and I'm finding it so hard to manage. I try to get out of the house but have no enjoyment and don't look forward to doing things. I keep making plans and putting them off. I am oversensitive and everything upsets me. I am irritable and getting into arguments with everyone over silly things. I spoke to the health nurse because I burst into tears in her office but I'm afraid to speak to anyone else in case they don't support me because I've been so argumentaitve lately I think they're sick of me. I'm due back to work in 3 months and can't enjoy my time off because I'm sick to my stomach with anxiety and worry. If I can't cope now, how will I manage when I go back to work? I am a teacher and know if I take time off with PND I will eventually go back and everyone will be asking what's wrong. I am embarrassed to tell people. A girl was out with PND for few weeks and everyone was talking behind her back saying she just made it up because she wanted more time with her baby. I also will be examined my a doctor from the department of education if I am off for more than 28 days and the thoughts of this makes me so sick. Will I ever be ok to go back to work?

Hello ladies, I'm just here to have a rant I suppose! So I had my baby 12 weeks ago and my other half has a 5 year old son with his ex. Well I know how silly this is gonna sound but he got her flowers after she had his first son and I was promised I would get beautiful flowers too cos it's something that I kinda became slightly obsessed about. Anyway I had a great labour and I got my amazing beautiful baby boy...but no flowers! He explained he had no money which I understand given his job barely pays the bills but my argument is that he had my card and I obviously wouldn't have even noticed 20 quid gone for them. It's made me feel so worthless and completely not good enough compared, even though I know it's me he wants but I just can't shift it. He doesn't get how he made me feel like he had money to go out for dinner with his friend the night I had the baby. I don't really know what I'm looking for here but I can't get over how this has made me feel and I haven't cried for nearly 3 weeks and now I'm crying over this. He can't fix it now so how do we get passed it? With Valentine's coming up I know he's going to get me flowers that will just cause an argument. I'd love to tell him what he can do but I know I'll never ever forgive him.
