PostSubject: WHAT DO I HAVE   Mon Aug 25, 2008 11:27 am

Hi, My baby was born 5 months ago. When he was born I immediately bonded with him. I think I had normal baby blues, with panic/anxiety attacks and being weepy

I am still getting these but it when mostly I am not with him. He is so precious to me and I love spending time with him. I have no feelings of annoyance or irratability. I donot have the urge to hurt him or myself, but I do feel weepy, sometimes detached, and I feel like he is the think that keeps me sane.

What I have seems to be a terrible anxiousness leaving him, and this inturn gives me these attacks. Is this a continuation of PND is it a type of PND??/

PND can take many forms, so it could very well be that you have it in another form to the more commonly described symptoms.

It could also be that you have Postnatal Distress, which is a form of PND that is less severe and (if I remember correctly) more commonly takes the form of anxiety. However, saying it is less severe does not make it any less important! You should definitely consider contacting an psychologist with experience in PND. In some cases a few sessions of therapy to talk about how you are feeling can help overcome the anxiety, and you may have no need for any form of medication.

If you need something to help you with the anxiety, you could look at using something homeopathic, such as Rescue Remedy.

hope this helps!
