You may have seen my post last week.
My son is now 3wks old and I remain well
Unfortunatley the crisis team & my family "dont trust my judgement".
Even though my mind is clear, I'm sleeping 6+hrs per night and my son is exclusively breastfed, latching himself and feeding solidly for 20-30 mins each feed (demand during the day and two dream feeds per night at around 12:30 & 04:30) they are suggesting I now take preventative medication!?
It really feels like a test as they're also saying I need to give my son formula!?
I've explained the above to the crisis psychiatrist (who actually remembers me from when I was ill after my daughter) and I have asked for a second opinion from the perinatal psychiatrist who has seen me throughout this pregnancy. Just waiting for the next contact.
Advice please if the perinatal psychiatrist says take medication/give formula as well?
I really want to trust them but, after what happened to me last time with bad advice (see my previous post), the fact that they don't trust me when I say I'm well and that they are now contradicting themselves, I am quite understandably confused as to who I should believe in; the mental health experts or myself.
RSVP ASAP - the later in the day it gets the more pressure I expect my partner (who has his own issues with OCD) will put on me to ignore my mother's instinct and comply with his/their suggestions.
