    You could be suffering from post natal depression.

    Try and talk to your Dr and explain how you feel.

    Its a horrible place to be, but no one can take your baby. Your baby knows you by sight and also by smell. Your baby is loved, cared for you are doing everything you can and should be so don't worry.

    I am speaking the truth.

    I know its hard but you will get there.

    With love, Linda xx

      This is early on Thursday morning. You are doing just the right thing. Phone as soon as the surgery is open and make the appointment. Then tell us that you have your appointment. I am sure Linda will be so pleased. I certainly will be. I am sure Linda would love to hear more of your beautiful baby too. 

      We are rooting for you. You are being so brave, a mum your baby can be proud of.

      Dear worry, I hope so but I will tell you part of my story.

      Decades ago I was in deep trouble with inappropriate and prolonged treatment from a specialist who had not learned the medical principle "If it is not doing any good stop doing it." I was taking four pills n times daily" each intended to counter the ill effects of the pill earlier in the queue. Eventally I was refered to the psychiatry department where none other than the Professor attended to me. Of the doctors concerned in my failing treatment he was the only one who seemed to have any medical common sense. He wrote to the first consultant begging him to stop the failing treatment. 

      So much depends on the man/woman who happens to be a physician. Please continue to be brave. I am sure you will deal with the situation as it unfolds, and you worries will turn out to be like early morning vapours - gone as soon as the sun is up.

    Hi worry, oh bless you xx. You beloved baby son will never ever love any one as much as he loves you..... a baby thrives on it's mother's love, hugs, kisses and cuddles and you are the person who will always do these the best... enjoy this very special time...I do agree with the lady before that you may have post natal depression, and for you own peace. Of mind and your beloved little one ( he wants his mummy to be the happiest person in the world ) you should have a word with you GP..... enjoy this wonderful time, I have four children, all adults now, I wish you. Peace of mind and joy... sincere regards Deirdre xxx

      Hi, if you feel your Dr has not been sympathetic to your need then it might be worth speaking to your midwife or the practice nurse.

      You deserve the very best!

    Hello, I do agree with others that this could be post natal depression. Please see your GP and talk to your health visitor too. Your baby knows who it's mother is they sense and know your smell. Post natal depression causes all sorts of thoughts, your hormones are all over the place. I have had post natal depression twice and you will eventually come out the other side, but you do need support. The suicide of your brother as added to your depression, it's a terrible thing to go through. My husband and nephew commited suicide so again i can understand how this is for you. You have had so many changes in just a short time no wonder you are struggling. Please keep with this forum it's a great support. You can pm me if you want to. Hugs to you.

    Elizabeth.
