I have 3 children, youngest 6 weeks. I was diagnosed 4 weeks ago with postpartum psychosis, have been on medication just as long, I now feel my partner makes a better caregiver than I ever could, people on the mental health crisis team seem to think I'm getting and suggest me getting a job? Seems ridiculous in light of the fact I can barely manage to control the negative feelings towards the people I love, let alone strangers.
I feel like I'm not needed as a mother anymore, my partner does it better and really, I just don't feel able to love my children anymore so I don't want to be a part of their lives.
I know it's early days but will this pass? Will I ever love my children again? I feel nothing but irritation about them, which I know is wrong but it feels like I will never be the part in their lives that I was again.
