I used to post here a lot maybe 10 years ago. It's good to see some of you still here. And sad to see some not.
A lot has happened for me since I was here last. I'd like to catch up with what you have all been up to, and meet some of the new folks too.
I got married, then had another bout with the beast not long after that (it had been brewing for a while and I was trying to change / go off meds to get pregnant). Then things got better, and a couple of years later we had a baby, then another. They are now 3 and 18 months. I got a bit depressed with my first, but had a great health visitor and got over it quickly. Then when I was pregnant with no. 2 the beast came back again, lifted when she was born, then came back with a vengeance. I'm now in counselling with a postnatal depression centre and taking even more med (*sigh*).
I've been feeling really alone with it all - my husband is great, but I don't want to overload him, and we have no family support, both working and I have little time / energy for friendships, also my mother is terminally ill and my dad her carer (both of them have psych problems too).
Well, that's enough for now. I'm glad I finally remembered my password! Better get reading, lots of posts to catch up with!
