Can somebody please help. I just had my second baby only 10 days ago. Ive been feeling very very low and anxious and been have the same awful thoughts that this is it. I did get better the last time though it took a long time. I cant see any happiness or joy at present, im back on meds but theyll take weeks to work. I just need some reassurance. Im very anxious that it will spiral into somethinh worse though i am up and functioning, im just going through the motions each day..i.feel so guilty to. Especially to my firstborn who is 3. Hes such a happy boy and i am currently miserable. My house does not feel like my own and i feel like i'm in a bubble. I am dredging up how i felt the last time and its scary. Xx
Hi, I am new to this but as far as I can tell early treatment is really beneficial with this, also you are so much better equipped to deal with this second time round. You did it once, you can and will do it again. Stay strong x
Thanks for reply. I got referred back to mental.health team and i am bac on meds. I couldnt care if i need them for the next 5 years as long as i feel better and back to myself. It was too long and hard a road the last time. Even though i did get better it took a long time and feeling like this makes you think you wont get better again. V scary. Thank you for message.
Glad to hear it. You sound so much more positive! I hope your journey isn't a long one this time.
