recently the doctor has diagnosed me with pnd and anxiety. some days I just sit there crying other days I'm so angry I just want to lash out. recently I've been taking it out on my DP. he's been doing extra hours just to support us and has been really unwell. I've been trying to be a good partner by looking after him but I still can't seems to ignore the little things, him leaving his rubbish everywhere, ignoring things I have done for him, and today him just walking in from work telling me he's going out going on his computer texting his mates and ignored me and his son. well I feel like he has but he's probably just cooling down so he doesn't take it out on me.

I don't know what I want from writing this on here, maybe I want someone to tell me it's my pnd and I've having a bad moment. he's not talking to me properly (probably cause he's out with his mates) but I feel like I've messed everything up. there's only so much he can put up with me.

Having pnd is horrendous - you feel alone , and anxious worrying over all sorts of things. He probably does not know what to do pnd is hard on partners as well. Can you talk to your health visitor or contact one of the support groups such as Association for Postnatal Illness speaking to others who have been through pnd and recovered helps - you will get better- Good luck

I've never heard of that group I'll look into it now. I've spoke to my HV and because I'm under my doctor with medication she doesn't want to change it.

now I'm being fine with my DP he's asking what's wrong. Can't do wrong from right haha
