Hi there I'm New to this forum, I am currently experiencing the Depression side of postpartum psychosis and it seems never ending. The worst part of this current episode of depression is feeling disconnected with everything and everyone, I am fortunate that I have great support from my partner but this feeling of numbness and emotionless doesn't seem to subside. I constantly feel like a terrible mum and unable to have the connection I once had with my daughter who is now 11months. I am currently struggling with huge anxiety, continuously questioning my ability as a mum and every day feel more and more useless and hopeless. Has anyone else found they feel disconnected to their baby....does this attachment/bond come back? I feel I'm letting my baby girl down and failing her as a mother. I would really appreciate feed back of anyone feeling similar feelings and any help and advice to get through this depressive state...
