Reply to Does it help to women that have been through PND,

As much as your friends can understand and be there for you i dont think anyone understands unless they have been through it. I had pnd with my first; its an awful affliction. I wish there was more support groups for women going through this.

PND is the most difficult thing I have ever gone through. I am on medication for almost a year now and I am feeling much more myself but I still havery hard days. The worst of it was not being able to love my baby the way I wanted to. It is getting easier all the time though. Friends brush it off because they don't understand the debilitating effect it has on your life. Things that I normally took in my stride seemed like huge scary tasks that would drain every ounce of my energy just thinking about them ( e.g. putting the kids into the car). I dreaded my husband going to work.I didn't want to be left alone and couldn't cope with the baby. I got a feeling of dread when I heard him wake. I don't feel like that now thank god but I still sometimes feel panicky if I'm alone with the kids all day and have nothing planned.

Just reading this brought it back to me, I felt all those feelings and much more as well. So wish I had this website or another woman that I could share with. Hope I never go throught anything like that again, I really thought I would never be my old self again, with time support and medication I made it!!

in exactly same situation 6 months in and feel so alone. I was hospitalised for 6 weeks and it broke my heart. I would love to hear recovery stories so so alone and so so hard to feel this way.
