Has anyone else had enough of this circle of depression? I have. I feel positive for a while, then bang, straight back down to depression mode, and can't be bothered to live. I've been on this drug since Oct, started on 20, then 40 now 60...What next? Have had PND since Oct 2005, can't seem to pull myself out of it, any positive stories to help me?

    Hi there mum of 2 and a very warm welcome here.

    Is this the only drug you have tried? Are you receiving any counselling or therapy?

    While feeling positive whst kind og things do you do? And when back in the drepression - how do you deal with it?

    I had PND years ago - took them 3 years to iron - stretch - mould and fiddle with my brain before I was fianlly able to stop the tablets and lead a 'normal' life again.

    Can you see a pattern to your depressive days? Possibly something that happened the day before?

    Finally, do ylou drink alcohol?

    Stick around here hun,there are some wonderful caring people who want to and will help you.

    Thank you Kimoli and Melbi, I know I'm not alone, but it really feels it when I'm low. I have PND for 2.5 years now, and am really fed up with it. I've had a full session of CBT/CAT, and see a CPN fornightly, but just can't shrug it away. When I think I am getting there I have a set back which takes me back further each time. All I want to do is sleep sleep sleep and more sleep, but can't. Even with sleeping tablets, its not enough. I have two young children and don't want them to be motherless, but thats got to be better than not knowing if the're being shouted at or ignored for no reason. I know I'm down again at the moment, probably school holidays, and having them around more than normal. Roll on the start of the term.
