I agree with the other mothers that postnatal depression isn’t something to be ashamed of. Just keep writing down what you feel in a diary or even here online so other mothers can console you and try to uplift your spirits. Whatever it is you’re going through, I hope you make it. to cope up with how you are doing you can try and do some activities which will help you lessen some of those thoughts like video games, reading, or maybe gamble with some online casinos like this one:

Hi Joanne

Sorry that you had to go through all of this. :cry: :heart:

Well done for speaking out, PND is not something to be ashamed of, or an indication that you are not a strong enough person. The more we speak about it, the less of a taboo it becomes and it can help others to find help without feeling judged.

I am delighted that you got help and that you are on the path to recovery!

Keep us posted :heart:

I have been diagnosed with PND and has been put on Cylift for three months.

This one year after feeling miserable, I never even thought it could be PND since my unhappiness wasn't related to my baby. According to my doctor it is a culmination of all the events of the past year. She has encouraged me to write it all down, and what better place then here where I know there is mommies who understand and I won't be judged.

It has been a tough year for me personally. First the birth of my baby which ended in a emergency C-section after twelve hours of labour and me not dilating. I was not prepared for the c-section at all. Everything went well and the breastfeeding went great. Until the third day when everything started to go wrong. My baby cried the whole time and only wanted to nurse. I was so tired and felt completely overwhelmed. My husband took two weeks leave but instead of spending it with me and the baby he had to clean out his fathers workshop. His dad was diagnosed with cancer early on in my pregnancy and had to stop working and instead of cleaning out the workshop early on they just left it .
My milk supply was too little and on the tenth day I had no milk whatsoever. My sister-in-law's husband then actually told me to stop pissing-and-moaning. On February 14 I had had enough this after visiting a pediatrician and being told that I was over feeding my baby. I had decided to put the baby on formula, this was the best thing for me and baby.

Unfortunately the depression did not leave. My FIL in law passed in March and it was a rough time for my husband. He had to support his mom and older brother who could not cope with my FIL death. In June my grandmother passed and my other grandmother fell ill. I felt completely alone as my husband was too busy supporting his mom through her grief.

I lost a friend in August also to cancer. And my other grandmother passed in November, we also found out she had cancer but she didn't tell any of us.

My boss became very ill in December and for a while we did not know if he was going to make it. Luckily he is now okay and even though he is now retiring we are all assured of our jobs.

I hate feeling this way as I have always believed myself to be a strong person. I hoped not to be judged as I know there is other mommies out there who has probably had a much tougher time.
