Hi I'm new here
I wrote one previous post and lots of lovely people replied thank you to everyone who replied. I'm sorry I was too scared to reply to anyones responses.
I've finally been seen by a perinatal psychologist about an episode I had in the third trimester of pregnancy. We didnt know what was wrong with me at the time but about 2 months postpartum a friend of mine who had postpartum psychosis that started in the 3rd trimester, said it sounded like what she had. I spoke to my GP and got referred to the perinatal mental health team. I had a one hour telephone appointment and was told what I had was an acute stress reaction no PPP. I know I met the symptoms of psychosis i am still struggling although the worst of it has passed.
Has anyone not got the correct diagnosis the first time around? I understand it might not be PPP, but I 100% do not agree with the diagnosis of acute stress response, as my symptoms lasted longer than 4 weeks.
I saw on here you can get a second opinion from a dr at Cardiff University. Has anyone gone for that?
