I suffered..

Post by Sarah Y on Sat Jan 12, 2008 10:37 am

When my son was born I suffered with Postnatal depression and for weeks I was totally unaware of what was happening to me, I felt so down in the dumps, Felt like nobody cared, felt that I had no friends or anyone around to support me. It was'nt until my mum mentioned it to me that I went to the doctors and was Diagnosed with Postnatal depression and was put on a course of anti depressants to help.
I had people around me but at the time of my sons birth my ex partner and I was going through a rough patch, I wanted us to move into our own house and he was'nt ready to make the commitment so I was at home with my mum from who I had support from back then but I still felt alone and would cry at the smallest little things.
I'd advise anyone who feels the any of the above to go and talk to either your health visitor or a doctor, it helped me overcome postnatal depression. There are also a number of books available which a couple of my friends have read and found helpful.

Hi Sarah,
Its good to see that you were able to get the help you needed. I didnt (and have posted my story) but I was lucky to come through without seeing anyone about it. I wish now that I had though.

I'm glad you saw the symptoms of postnatal depression, I have to admit when you are suffering it' not that easy to pick up.

I think the only reason I knew is because I was so scared during my pregnancy that with all the things I was going through I would end up suffering. Its almost like I opened the door for it I think.

It helps to be aware of things like this even though you can't always spot them.

Thank, I hope it helps people see some of the symptoms and if you feel low after the birth of your baby it may not just be your body adjusting. Best of luck x
