So it was fine. Not ground breaking or anything. There were 4 other moms, 2 pregnant one with her first one with her second and 1 with a 5m old another with a 17m old and a 5m old.

A lot of them are overwhelmed and not supported well by the husband or BF. A lot have in law issues. We are stil skimming the top of the deeper down feelings and issues so I dont know too much.

I got a book from them I started reading. I was having doubts that I had PPD because I wasnt weepy or detached from the baby and didnt have any anxiety issues. But the book hit several other feelings that I have, feelings of inability to cope, guilt, frusteration, loss of interest in sex, much to my husband's dismay...

So it made me see that we all have different manifestations of the same issue. Kinda depressing lol

I went to a support group, and it was the same feeling about their hubbys not supporting and depression issues more than anything, and i felt i didnt fit in. It seems my issue is a lot more to do with anxiety and intrusive thoughts rather than depression.
