I'm not sure if I have PND but it's 2 months after my son was born and I still feel sad. I live with my mum so get help during the day but it's night times I find so lonely. My boyfriend lives and works in cork so he's away a lot. Even when he's here he doesn't always help me at night. I find it hard to talk to him. Also my little boy won't sleep. I don't know if I feel resentment or if I'm depressed. I really don't know what to do. Thanks Carla Sent from my iPhone
Carla it is so hard when you not getting sleep, I found that so difficult and feeding at night felt so lonely. You must talk to your boyfriend he cant be inspired that you need help and if he away a lot he needs to help more when he there. It is hard work being a first time Mum and take a lot of adjustment. If your Mum there during the day she might mind the baby for a while so you can get out for a while. Walking really helped me. Look at helpfull suggestions on this website they helped me. You need more support and things will get easier.
It's hard enough without having your partner around , I think ye need to have the big talk about how the living situation is affecting yer lives! I have a partner but wasn't very much use and ,y daughter never slept , o can relate big time to feeling alone! In meantime can anyone stay over for even a night , friends cousins just to break up the week for you until partner comes back, something to look forward to.
