Once again I’m up late thinking about my terrible life I find miserable most days. I’ve had depression on / off for years and was on medication for it. I stopped when I got pregnant and things seemed to be going ok with my then fiancé, we got married and had our baby the following month. I found out he had cheated on me with an old fling a month before we got married but I found out a few weeks before I gave birth. So fast forward to now, my baby is 5 months and I’ve been diagnosed with postpartum depression & anxiety and I’m back on antidepressants. It’s been really tough for me to get through this and still try and heal from my husbands infidelity. What’s driving me crazy is that on 2 occasions he’s had random girls message him in the middle of the night and he’s denied anything going on that again they are old flings trying to get with him but he’s not entertaining it, I don’t believe him but I just want my family to work. I still love him after all as sad and pathetic it sounds, but it’s causing my anxiety to go through the roof, now he just has his phone off at night to avoid confrontation and said he’s cleared his phone of any previous flings before me but he can’t control who contacts him etc. I don’t know what to think. I’m just stuck in a rut of feeling so insecure and low but trying to be strong for my baby. We don’t have enough money for couple counselling but I’m getting therapy soon off the NHS so hoping it helps....I just don’t know when this nightmare will end
