How has PPD affected your relationship with your spouse, your family, your children?

It hasn't really had any effects on my relationship with Kinsley and Noah .. the only thing I can really notice is that sometimes I get easily frustrated over very small things they do .. HOWEVER .. it has had a profound effect on my relationship with Nick.

Like you, I get easily frustrated with little things my children do. I was yelling at them today for no reason at all.

My sex drive has taken a nose dive. I stayed up about an hour after my daughter fell asleep last night so that my husband would be too tired for sex. I was so not in the mood, but I knew he wanted to.

It definitely affected us since he usually has to take on more, but he's used to me being depressed.

I still have a tendency to get frustrated really easily. Especially if I'm tired. I think the worst part of PPD for my relationship with DH was that I freaked out anytime I was away from Dalton. DH thought that I didn't trust him with Dalton for quite a while.

It has definitely taken a toll on my relationships with DH and my step-daughters.
I am sooo very easily irritated and I get very snappy.
With my step daughters it seems like everything they do irritate me and I'm always snapping at them.
With DH I just have no sex drive. No desire to be touched or to be intimate with him. And I can be quite snarly with him. He's pulled away from me in the last year. But I just started meds so i'm hoping it helps

Thank you HeatherW97 for my siggy

DH has been wonderful. He has had his moments but I think overall it strengthened our marriage. We have a strange connection like that though. He is my rock and I would be lost without him. It is so hard not to take out frustration on DH though. It is easier since I know he will always be there. It isn't fair though . It is something I work on.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
