We have recently been through a huge upheaval in our lives, moved from a country town back to the big city, away from my parents who were living next door and we did it by traveling for 3 months around Australia to get home. We have a 4 year old and 8 month old. The 4 yr old is a right handful at the moment which I feel is understandable considering what he's been through in the last few months, however he is still very difficult to deal with at times and my husband just can't deal with it and just yells at him. My 8 month old hasn't been sleeping well which has made me very sleep deprived and I have actually been having what the doctors diagnosed as panic attacks. I actually feel I may have mild PND but my doctor just asked if I feel depressed and when I said no she just left it at that. I am seeing her again tomorrow so will discuss it with her then.
I guess I just wanted to get that out and see if anyone has anything to say. I get very angry at my husband because he doesn't seem to want to help with the kids and I practically have to beg to get him to do anything. I guess maybe I could understand more if he was depressed. I have done a lot of reading on PND and can see some of the symptoms in him. Although I must add when the doctor told me I was having panic attacks and really needed to get some rest he didn't hesitate to help with the baby and started looking after him at night for which I am very grateful. Though it took a doctor to say it for him to believe I really was sick!
Thank you for reading, any advice would be appreciated.
