Where to start

Hi I'm very new to this so please excuse me.

I've been struggling with anxiety and depression for many years relating to post traumatic stress

I was assaulted 5 years ago and have never dealt with it until now. I went through a traumatic birth in August which brought all these anxieties and feelings of worthlessness back into my life

My relationship with my partner has broken down due to this and I've never felt so alone. The only blessing is that I have my gorgeous baby girl otherwise I honesty don't feel I could go on. I've often thought maybe she would be better off without me like everyone else but i don't want to leave her without a mum. I'm receiving treatment currently and this is why I'm on here as it's been advised I give it a try.

It would be nice to speak to someone who can understand.

I’m very sorry to hear what happened to you. It’s awful to think there are people out there who deliberately set out to hurt others. I can relate to your feelings of not wanting to be here anymore, as I still to some degree have these. I am doing much better now though since opening up about it all. I am here if you want to talk and need someone to talk too.

I can relate to some of the things you mentioned. I’ve struggled for years with depression. A few years ago I was determined to push and help myself and it’s been a real fight. I believe you have to help the medication . So many people have so many issues. I just stumbled on this site so I’m a little cautious. I suffered from PSD from a traumatic car accident. I was really fighting and we had. Home invasion. That pushed me over the edge and I’m fighting to get back, then my wife had a heart attack. This is what we let happen to ourselves . Life and our marriage is changed forever. We all feel helpless or useless at one time or another. Life is a fight. You have the most wonderful thing to fight for your baby. That’s the greased incentive

Good luck
