sad  hi there everyone.. I found this site while doin a search on the net and wanted to come and join it..
 
I am 31 and have 2 children both girls.. after my 1st daughter i suffered depression and it was bad but maybe not as bad as it is now after havin the 2nd one. Both my girls are aged 5 and 3. The 2 of them had medical problems the 1st reflex and the 2nd one has a heart condition. It is so hard tryin to work with them and there are days I dont want to get out of bed cos they never seem to listen to me or are happy with wot I give them or do for them.
 
Is there ne other mums in here who feel the same way as I do and want to cry most days???
 
I am on medication but dont want to rely on it to much cos it makes me tired all the time and I cant sleep becos I have the kids to look after.
 
I will talk to ne one who feels the same..
 
xo
HI there feel free to email me ne time as I love to chat to ne one who is like me a mum and sufferun from depression...

Hi Annmarie,  I just wanted to welcome you to Healing Well forum.  We are happy to have you.  I am not going to be of much help for you as I don't have children.  However we do have several mothers that do post here on a regular basis.  I am sure that one of them will be along shortly to reply to your post.  Take care ~ Elisha

Hey Annmarie31, I do have children, and also went through a terrible postpartum experience with both of them. Which meds have you tried? I'm no doctor, but I've tried many antidepressants with mixed results and could at least share those experiences with you. Different meds work for different people, and you just don't know what side effects (like being tired) you might have until you try them. Sometimes they go away, sometimes they don't. I can definitely relate to the parenting issues as well--I often feel like I'm a lousy mom, but things are most definitely better with my parenting when they are better with my mood.
