Hello everyone I am a 34 year old female with 3 children. I was attacked in 2012 and suffered ptsd eversince. I had cbt and started university 6 months later, I found out i was pregnant in late 2013 and gave birth to my son in 2014. Unfortunately i suffered some kind of break down in April my pstd returned and also i was having thoughts of harming myself and was convinced I was a horrible person. The doctor said it was post natal depression I have had another course of cbt and am waiting for emdr regarding my childhood. I am on medication and everyday is different, I cant beleive how my life has changed in 12 months, I had a good job and was so outgoing and confident. I am now so different and just need support from people who understand. My partner left in April as he felt i pushed him out, i have explained i didnt mean to i couldnt cope with what was going on in my head but he still cant forgive me.

Sorry to hear you are having such a hard time. I suffered from post natal depression and my husband left me when our son was 18 months. I had to return to live with my parents as i couldnt cope. It must be really hard with 3 children to care for. Do you have any family to help as it can be such a lonely time.

Hi, my mum moved in with me in August and helps around the house. I cant talk to her about my feelings though as she seems to not want to hear and i dont blame her because it must be hard to see your daughter suffer. I have been feeling loads better these last few weeks then all of a sudden i feel low again, not as low as i was but im frightened incase i ever went that way again. Is this normal?
