This is the first time I've written on MumsNet.

I'm really worried and feeling like I'm a danger to myself.

I was referred to a mental health team recently and have been ignoring their calls thinking I'm a strong person and they will take my child away from me.

But today, I feel like my husband and baby would be better off if i wasn't around.

I can't articulate myself so forgive me.

I don't know what's happening.

I had my hormones tested at doctors and all ok so what's going on?

My husband has taken our daughter away today to give me some time to myself but i don't want to be alone yet don't want to see anyone.

I'm a mess and worried something dangerous is going to happen as I can't think straight.

I'd never ever hurt my child. She's all I have to live for. But I'm ashamed of myself.

I had a high flying job before being a mum and considering going back to work so I'm not alone with my thoughts. But, on the flip side, work could add to my stresses.

What's happening?

I don't believe in medication to mask problems but my life is crumbling around me.

Take the referral, I have been under the MH team on and off for 12 years. I have two DD's and I'm PG and there has never been any suggestion of them being took off me.

Your partner sounds supportive and you sound like you need some help.

MH disorders is just a sickness of the brain it's nothing to be ashamed of, medication isn't your only option. A lot of people do well with therapy.
