I don't know how much my DH gets what I am going through. He tries to support me but.............
He still wants to go off and do things. He has my oldest in 4wheel racing and wants take off all weekend to go to the race. It is over a 4 hour drive and I don't want to take the baby. So I will be stuck at home all weekend with the baby and I am scared to death of it.

Plus the gilt of not feeling emotional bonded with the baby is making things worse.

well this might sound weird .... but sometimes people can understand ........................ however, a lot of the time people can't begin to even grasp the idea of how hard PPD or any other kind of mental disorder is cause they've never experienced it themselves

Sadly ... I have to admit I used to be one of those persons ... I just didnt understand ... until my own illness hit me full fledged and now I'm way more understanding and compassionate towards others

I say hang in there ... all you can do is keep those lines of communication open and talk to him ... if he's listening and talking back then great ... if not, I know its hard to get through ... but just remember ... you're not alone ... WE are here with you k?

If you have a journal let him read it. If not maybe write down your feelings and let him read them.

for my DH It literally took me blowing up on him one day. He just disregarded me being upset and depressed or just didnt want to except it. So one day when he was arguing with me about something and I had had a really really bad day I smapped big time about it all. So since them he has been alot more understanding about it. I think he realized alittle bit how hard it is staying home all day with two young kids and being soo depressed all the time.
