Need to talk. Feeling Crap.

Why is it that when you need to talk to someone they're out. Hubby is at work, Health Visitor isn't in today, my doc is on hols til next week and even my mum isn't in. I feel so crappy today. Keep wanting to cry. Put a thread on the other day about my 5 yr old daughter and how I don't want her near me. Got some advice, most was go to the docs so I made an appointment, but it's a week away yet. I hope I haven't got postnatel depression again (my baby is 8 months). My poor daughter gets it all taken out on her. I just can't help but have a go at her all the time. She has started to be naughty and I know it's all my fault for being horrible to her. I need to get myself motivated to clean the house but I just can't be bothered. Its usually spotless but I don't care anymore. Has anyone been on Anti depressants while still breastfeeding? I really don't want to go on them again. Please can someone cheer me up??

Hi hun, ive been following your posts and i know what a horrid time you are having.
Its nice to speak to you.

Hiya. That was quick. Feeling a bit better already! Just phoned my hubby at work and he just told me to ring my mum. He doesn't realise how crappy I'm feeling. Going shopping in an hour, hopefully that will keep my mind off things for a bit.

Soory you're felling grim,dumpy. It's all so bloody exhausting isn't it? The shopping sounds good! Are you going alone-that would be better still!

shop shop shop.....oh and get yourself a HUGE MASSIVE cake and a coffee while you are out.
Enjoy your day.

Nope! I never go anywhere on my own. Got my 8 month old with me. I will no doubt do a supermarket sweep again cos she gets bored really quickly. The only time I have to myself is when she goes to bed at 7. By then I can't be bothered to shop. She's really clingy all the time (probably cos Im breastfeeding) so I'd be a bit worried about her waking up if I went after 7! Never mind. One day I'll be able to go alone.(hopefully!)

The cake sounds good! It will have to be chocolate, but I will have to bring it home with me and scoff it then!

there are anti d's you can take whilst bf. not taken them myself whilst feeding. i have done the same thing with my eldest dd. make a huge effort to give her as much attentention as poss. and i am always having to say sorry, for being grumpy with her.it does sound like you could do with them. but also a bit of space. is there anyone how could have baby for a little while so you can do somthing even just for an hour in a day. good luck

I do have a bit of time to myself but only after 7pm when they're in bed. My hubby stays in and I go to the stables to see my horse every night. I always feel like I have to rush back though incase my little one wakes up. Just feel like just a mum and not a wife at the moment. Got a docs app on Thurs so I will see what she says. I know I need to make an effort with my 5 yr old but half the time I don't want to.(that sounds so horrible i know) Wish I could go to the docs sooner but she is on her hols and I don't want to see a bloke.
