Hi everyone. I'm hoping some of you will share your experiences with me.

I'm researching a blog post on how friends, relatives and partners can best support women with PND; If you have suffered with depression of any kind I'd like to know what it is you feel you need when you're in the thick of the darkness.

In my case it was quiet and help with the children. However, I never really asked for practical help and if anyone had offered I'd have felt that they thought I wasn't coping or was a terrible mum. I'd probably have turned them down, despite desperately needing help and screaming inwardly that I couldn't cope.

This is why I think it's so hard for loved ones to know what to do for the best. I'd really appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks in advance xx

My blog is at if you'd like to find more from me.
