PND and crap husband

2am, can't sleep! My little one is practically 6 months old. Best baby in the universe! Always happy, sleeps sooo well yet I find myself with PND! I feel so guilty about it especially when I read about others having PND with babies who have colic etc..
Anyway! My husband and I are just killing each other lately! He won't do anything with our daughter. I'm left to do everything and I just feel like I'm on the verge of a breakdown/divorce! We're together almost 10 years! Always wanted a baby but since having her it's been all left on me! I do absolutely everything on my own. He has no interest. He doesn't even want to hold her for longer than a few seconds.
All of this I feel is making me so much worse!!! I'm so unhappy! I spend days in my pj's. I just don't know what to do or how to make myself feel better? I'm slipping and I can feel it's getting worse. I'm on medication but I don't feel it's helping me. I've no will power, no energy, I don't feel like myself, I feel so alone and lost. can anyone relate?

Yes i can!!! I haven't been diagnosed with anything (havnt been to the gp) but i feel like i may need a little help and ive spoke to my hubby and he was all lets go to the gp but i honestly felt i was ok and had a few good days however this weekend its as if that conversation never happened i all ive been getting is what is wrong with you just be happy so you are deffo not alone!! Can you make yourself go out even maybe for just a walk or are there any baby groups near you? Even having a bit of a routine may help a bit even if its just getting dressed everyday, start off small and build up when you feel like adding a little more into your day i hope that helps even just a little!!

@Newmom2018 how are you now? Have you told your DH how you feel?

Have you heard of apni? Their Helpline is open now and is staffed by women who have experienced PNI. I really would recommend giving them a call Smile

You might find the MN Postnatal Health Section helpful too Thanks
