AD's did not help, my supposed PND. What do I try next ?

O.k. so I am definitely struggling. But I don't think I have PND. Or maybe I am thus in more denial than I think !!
My dh does not think I have pnd. Neither does my mum. Or my 2 best friends. But they all accept that I am struggling.
My Gp does not think I have PND either, but thinks I am struggling. I have seen 3 gp'S over this.
I have tried 2 ad's. One was ciroplan, I think. Lots of seratinin, right ? Didn't help. Then my Gp said she was concerned, that it was tooo strong and that I didn't have PND, just struggling. She did the edinburgh test again, and I was very low. So she gave me a weeker one and I weaned of them, over a period of 10 days.
I feel good. Love ds2. Go out and laugh alot. look forward to things.sleep great. eat well.
So I cry from time to time. I shout at ds1 aged 5. But not for no reason. For very good reasons. He drives me insane. But I shouldn't lose it/shout as much / as violently as I do.
I asked for anger management but it has very very long waiting.
So where do I go from here ?

Are you planning on going back to work? It might be what you need

so no one as diagnosed PND,but you are anxious does your area offer IAPT there are selected IAPT sites ask your GP if you qualify

you need to give AD a few weeks to kick in and work.if that is how you continue

do you have good support,friends/family
has something changed or any triggers

hope things resolve

wezz, begin october, for 2 days a week. can't wait. my bf and my mum think it will be the making of me.scottish, I have no support, have booked ds2 into creche one morning a week, which has helped a bit.
I did give the ad's plenty of time, but they did nothing.
will check out links, thank you.
