Hey everyone, looking for a bit of help/advice from anyone who has gone through Post Natal Depression. I had my baby 5 months ago, everything from my pregnancy to birth was a breeze. Yet in the last few months I have been suffering terribly from Post Natal Depression. I feel so lost and alone, even though I have so much support around me. My partner contacted a doctor/public health nurse months ago at the 1st sign that there was something wrong, but I wouldn't attend as I didn't want to believe anything was wrong. Myself and my partner began to fight an awful lot, I became controlling, jealous, angry, anxious, insecure, the list goes on, to the point where he couldn't take it any longer and left. Now I feel so much more alone. It's killing the both of us to be apart. I have made an appointment with a doctor and I cannot wait to go. How long does it take to start feeling better? I need to get my relationship and family back if it's not too late. It's a horrible illness and my heart goes out to anybody else feeling this way x

Hi Kellie OMG this sounds just like me, I took it out on my husband and am still surprised that he didnt walk. I thought I knew it all or other days couldnt make the smallest of decissions. It is an absolute horrible illness, I did go to the GP and went on medication, I was not told I would feel worse before things would improve, the tablets are not magic but do take the edge off. So important to get some exercise even if you dont feel like it. Try to stay posotive and take one day at a time. I did go to a support group in Cork and it was so good to meet other Mums that were suffering like me also they encouraged me to bring my husband at least for one meeting. It helped us so much to realise we not the only ones going throught this and there is light at the end of the tunnell. Look up the helpfull suggestions on the website The main thing is I got better, I had to stay on medication for 6 months and came off with the support of my GP
