NOOOOOOOOOO he hasn't supported me at all We almost broke up. He cannot cope with my temper when i am like that (sorry was like that). He didn't know what to do with it and to tell you the truth i was not good either. His way is to always take the offensive He attacks and some of these attacks were brutal (not physically).....and i attacked worse and so on. So i guess i went through it alone. My take on PPD was an angry one. Oh man was i angry with everything BUT my child around me. And i took it out on him. I cannot really blame him so much. It must have been really hard living with me back then I think i am done having children

My husband doesn't understand it at all. He'll help me in that he'll stay up with our daughter so that I can get some sleep. He'll try to get her to go to sleep between feedings either until he gets exhausted or she gets hungry, then he hands her off to me. I can usually get an hour or two more sleep because of this.
But he doesn't understand how real depression is and how much it can effect every day life, so he doesn't really support me in any way for it.

Ouch, I'm sorry to hear that two of you have had such problems with PPD and no support from DH. My DH tries to support me, but when it comes right down to it, he also does not understand. He always says that he will watch Dalton if I ask him, but when I do, he makes a huge production of it. As a result, I'm still exhausted and you know that makes PPD worse.
Kerian, I'm so happy that your DH was so supportive!

For the most part yes .. He helps out with her and lets me have a break when he sees that I need it .. However .. he doesn't deal with the mood swings and anger very well .. He also gets a little defensive which of course starts an arguement .. we're working on it though.
