Feeling so crap, will this ever pass ? I feel so bad for my kids sad tell myself when I pick them up I will b a good mummy today and hug them and love them , but it doesn't happen cause I'm so miserable sad

It will pass, I promise. I know there are days when it feels hopeless, but it really will go. Do you have any medical or family support?

No support really my mum doesn't think it's depression she thinks it hormonal my DP works I jus sit at home alone all day .... Pretty crap really

Tell me about yourself and your children. smile I have two, a 3.3yo DD and a 10mo DS and am on my second bout of PND. I also had AND during my second pregnancy.

My gp was hopeless jus shoved these ad's in my hand and said come back in two weeks I took one I was nrly falling asleep all day I can't look after a baby like that sad I don't like talking to hv's etc I find them a bit patronising , but maybe that's just me ? I always tell myself we will do a baby group I get as far as the door and then walk back I just can't face it at the moment I'm just not as confident as I was sad my DP just thinks I'm over stressing myself and tells me not too as I come across snappy a lot of the time but Im just so touchy . I just feel my kids are having rubbish childhood and I'm scared because they are growing too quick and I'm wasting time I should be enjoying with them ifyswim?

I am going to try my best to get out today I'm gearing myself up to go out it just takes a while but I will do it toady .

I'm on ADs atm, Sertraline 50mg. I was tired and drowsy for the first few days but then it passed. I refused to take them the first time I had PND but this time I decided I needed the help. And I'm so glad I did.

I still struggle some days but I'm able to engage more with the children and don't have the extreme highs and lows I had before, I'm more even iyswim.

I agree with Beer, see a different GP. And try to plan something fun each day, even if it's just a walk or drawing. Then in the evening you can look back and feel that you have done something positive in the day. smile

They gave me seroxat it's nasty and highly addictive and makes you gain weight and made me feel awful like I had taken a bad drug which made me have a panic attack and forget where I was ! I explained this to gp she fobbed me off saying they don't cause those side effects ? My baby also slept all day after taking them ? I am really not up to swapping gp's I struggle just to put my shoes on it really takes all my effort let alone dragging myself back to gp sad
