having a better day

just to let u all know am having a better day than yesterday i feel i am dipping in and out of depression and not just because of the quitting i have suffered depression in the past and know only to well how it feels.

i have smoke clinic on thursday gonna speak with them about it but i do feel this is more than just quitting, i am getting excessively upset at the thought of returning to work as my maternity ends in 7 weeks and i am having alot of dark thoughts like before. i know the quitting maybe emphasizing the feelings but i think i should speak to a doctor with regards to it. my baby is only seven months and i am still feeding her myself so dont know if it could be post natal as i didnt suffer any teary days after she was born until now

  • Hi Boo,

    Glad to hear you are having a better day quit wise today.

    I too suffer from depression so know only too well how it is :rolleyes: It is definately worth talking to the clinic & more so your GP. Sometimes just talking things through with someone can help I have found. I guess you HAVE to go back to work? Sadly too many parents have to return to work these days when they would rather not. Try not to let the thought of your return cloud your last remaining weeks with your baby ;)

    Hugs, Gaynor xx

  • thank u thats good advise i must make the most of everyday as it happens and not look to far ahead i am definately gonna make an appointment with doctor while i am at smoke clinic before it gets to bad as its far harder to recover the lower u go feeling quite stable this evening but everyone is home its wen i am on my own in the day [apart from the kids] that i feel panicy about everything

    Sorry about that Boo, but please do see the doctor about it, there are people who can help you, let them. David

    Couldn't agree more with that. Hope you don't have to wait too long for an appointment. I am sure your advisor at the smoking clinic will be very pleased with you :D

    Have a great day today ;)
