Post Partum

Post Partum

So I just had my third child 8 months ago. I had post partum depression terribly bad with my last son. You would think I would have recognized sooner with this one that it was happening again. It has been a humiliating nightmare. I live with my Mother and brother n law who has a personality disorder. I have bipolar disorder, adhd and ptsd so I have been suffering all of the symptoms. When I started not wanting my baby and wishing I hadn’t had children I knew it was post partum.

Welcome

I'm so sorry you're going through so much. Are you getting help and support with your symptoms? Do you have a good GP?

It's positive you've recognised your symptoms. I think most of us have had times when weve been unwell with Pni that we've regretted having kids. I used to then in the same second I would feel so incredibly guilty as I loved my child so much and how could I think such things.

Try to think forward - with proper support you will recover quicker. How is it a nightmare LI ving with your mum and brother? Maybe between you it's possible to make changes in the household to make things easier for you x

Hey! I wouldn't be so hard on yourself. It's really hard to actually realise how much of it is postnatal and now much is just having to live with a baby and the sleep deprivation that brings. Add into the mix family living with you too!

Have you been to see the GP? Can you talk to your health visitor to try and get the support - it's never too late to get the help and get better! X
