My daughter is 2.5 years old. I never reacted the way I thought to motherhood, and have been stressed and suffering from anxiety ever since she started with colic at about 2 weeks. I have been to 2 councillors, the doctor on a number of occasions and even a hypnotherapist. I have totally lost my get-up-and-go and have fallen into a pattern of making excuses not to go to work and stay at home doing nothing. Is it too late to go back to the doctors and demand to be taken more seriously?! Can this still be postnatal depression or do I just need to "snap out of it"?!
