Think I had a bit of a breakdown last night - don't think I can do this.

Just feel so utterly worthless - am finding this so hard and can't imagine ever being happy again. Am so scared for bluechick and what her life will entail and don't think I can be her mummy - my heart is too broken.

Not sure why I'm posting. Come and tell me to get a grip. sad

Life will be better than this. And get some help for your postnatal depression. Being sad and feeling semi-suicidal for ages is not ok, it shouldn't go untreated just because professionals sympathise.

They might feel the same if given your circumstances, but that's a poor excuse for failing to offer meds/ therapy to lift your mood. At the very least they should be giving you an effective and kind shoulder to have a regular cry on.
