They won't tell you to just get over it, I can promise you that. It sounds like you're really down and you need help. Go and see the psych. They will look at how best they can treat the depression and support you till you get better. I can remember how overwhelming it all can be, but it can get better.

You will feel so much better when you've got help and you MUST seek help because you CAN be yourself again. Google cocoon family support if youre in London and go to your GP and tell the absolubte truth about how you feel - they've heard it before and they will help you. please go and get better, really, you must - you will be so glad you went.

babie you are ill at the moment - probably a depressive/anxiety illness - could it be PND. You are the real mum, but you need help, very soon. Please contact the CPN tomorrow and let her arrange for you to see a psychiatrist. Their specialism is of course mental illness so they're definitely not going to tell you to "get over it" - no more than an oncologist is going to tell a patient to "get over" cancer. There are meds you can take whilst breast feeding.

Sleep deprivation and exhaustion are in the mix too I imagine and making things worse. Have you any RL support - someone who can take over for a few hours so you can get some rest.

You say you don't know what to do - get your DP to phone the CPN tomorrow and ask her to arrange an urgent appointment with the psychiatrist. CPNs only advise this when it's necessary, and it IS necessary. Try to get some sleep now. You will be ok - it's just going to take time to get better.

Sorry - when you say "the thing was sent for the appointment" do you mean the CPN is arranging for you to be seen by the psychiatrist. Hope that's the case, so that you can get the help you need.

I think it's quite common to "see" things when you are exhausted through sleep deprivation and suffering from mental illness too. Is there any chance you can nap in the day though appreciate that's not possible with a 4 year old with sns - hope the apt with the psych comes through soon and you can get some help.
