Sorry to read your post and see you’re having a tough time. Are you in the UK like me? If so, it’s quite late isn’t it. I’m going to try and get some sleep myself in a sec... my husband is snoring away, headphones and some quiet music may be needed here!
There is a second opinion service for people with / who’ve had PP like us. You do need to be referred by your mental health professional, from how it reads on the website here: app-network.org/what-is-pp/...
If you’re worried can you maybe phone your GP in the morning and see if they can help too?
Sorry to hear you’re having a tough time. Try and rest tonight. I hope you have family around you to chat too.
Thinking of you. X
That’s ok Kerri_123 you’re not on your own. I’m sure you’ve not been grumbling as you describe. Everyone needs a listening ear. It’s good and important to talk.
So sorry sleep is challenging for you. I often try and relax by focussing on one part of my body at a time. I think of a warm relaxing glow, starting at my toes and moving up super slowly. It takes practice but sometimes I don’t remember the warm glow getting to my knees as I’ve nodded off. Hope that makes sense.
The NHS website has a few pointers on sleep:
I hope that maybe your GP / mental health team will help you with this too.
Logging off now. Sending warm glows your way. Try to rest, even if you feel you can’t sleep. Take care X
