Please can anyone offer me dome advice. it's been two and a half years since we had our second child and my husband had to hold everything together whilst I was ill. I was ill with my first also so in five years he gas coped twice with looking after us all. He is currently unemployed as he finished a post grad only to find he didn't want to do it and ended up having a panic attack on his last placement and pulling out. He has never has any major mental health issues but he keeps feeling low,crying and feeling useless and has too much time on his hands to think about everything. He says he feels he lost a part of himself after I was ill the second time and hasn't felt right since. I have said I will book him in at docs but he doesn't see what they can do, he is open to counselling but I feel it would be good to go to the GP first. I also feel responsible for the way he is I it was my illness that's caused it,I know deep down I couldn't have prevented it but still hard to know it was because of it as it why he feels like this. He's not low all the time, gets up and dressed, is looking for jobs etc, but every few days hits a wall. Are there any good online advice for men who have been affected by PP, he's not overly keen for forums though. Any help much appreciated xxx
