I started thinking the other nite about you ladies that have DH's/SO's/DBF's/DF's. How are they handling your PPD? do they have someone to talk to about their frustration with it? Are they supporting you in your battle with it? I'm going to try and find some rescources for them, and make a stickie that helps them out as well. PPD doesn't just effect us and the baby. It effects everyone we come in contact with. Sometimes I wish I had someone beside me to help me encourage me thru this. But then again I'm thankful that I'm the only one that is suffering. I would hate to be the other half of someone who is dealing with this illness. So if you ladies have any information to pass on for the male half of this illness please post it here and i will get a stickie made so they to can help us all fight this!!
hi.. i dont know any sites.. but yeh when im depressed my partner isnt supportive..
i just want to let you know im sorry you are going though this.. and i hope its overcomed soon.. it terrible going through it... hugs.
Well thank you.......Do you think by posting some of the Info for DH's and SO's would be helpful? Since I'm single I don't know. But I do know that if I had someone in my life I would like to them read and understand that way they can try and be more suportive.
Well, I just asked DH to read some helpful info that I had just found and his response was...."well, is it going to help you stop acting like you have been????" Comments like that make me just want to go run out and stand in the street and wait for the next car to come and knock me out of my misery.
Oh my.......alot of people don't understand. In all honesty I didn't either until I now. I hope he does read some of it. alot of it repeats the same info, but sometimes repatition is what finally gets thru peoples heads. I am still trying to find other resources. so hopefully I will beable to find something that will help him out. It's a tough place to be in for every person involved just like my venting post the other day about my DDs babysitter and my best friend. I said some horriable things about her, She read them on here, and was hurt. All because I didn't have my meds, and was spinning down into the darkness again, and she was the one who I could take out my frustrations on......but sadly I did it on here instead of face to face.
PPD is a horriable thing to deal with all around. And all I can do is find information and hope that everyone involved gets to read it to understand even just a little bit how horriable it feels.
