My wife gave birth 3 months ago. Since Thursday, she's been distracted, confused, paranoid, hostile/timid and delusional. Her maternity leave ended two weeks ago and it seems that she experienced some stress at work.
On monday, I picked her up from work early (in the morning) and informed them that she simply would not be able to come to work for the next two weeks. I'll deal with the repercussions of that later.
She's home, taking care of the baby now, but she's stopped generating milk. That doesn't help the situation.
She won't admit that she has a problem and refuses to go see a professional. She is even against me attending a support group (for caregivers of people with mental illness).
I want to do my best to diagnose her informally so that I can get an idea of the next steps. Should I be more forceful in prodding her to see a doctor? Should I just let her stay home and relax for these two weeks? Should I try to see a doctor on her behalf (without her consent)?
What is wrong with her?
