Hi everyone, I really don’t know what’s wrong with me if it’s pnd or something else, my son is nearly 9 months old and on and off I fell terrible , so sad unhappy I get upset so easily.. I was putting it down to pms symptoms because I generally feel worse around this time...lately though everyone is overwhelming me, I’m due back to work in 2 weeks and the thought of that along with leaving my son and being able to do it all has me in bits, I feel like I can’t cope with it all and that I can’t properly care for my son , Whenever my husband is around I just leave as I feel he’s better off with him and not me, what should I do?? Is this normal stress just before going back to work?

Hi I know it is so hard going back to work I was the same on my first, I think most Mums are the same. Once I got back it was just like I never away and I liked being back with my buddies and having a change of scenery. Do you enjoy your work? I am sure you are the best Mum but you really are stressing out over this. What I did was went back with the idea that I give it a week and if not able go to GP and get a cert for few weeks. You really need to talk to your husband about this, it is so hard leaving your baby, have you someone to mind him? Stop being so hard on yourself.
