Our expert says:
This sounds VERY like a PND, post-natal depression, which is a common disorder, which, fortunately, generally responds really well to proper treatment. Arrange, urgently ( no point in feeling so bad for any longer than a minimum ) to see a good local psychiatrist for a full assessment and treatment advice . This will probably include medication, and if possible CBT-style counselling, a combination which is particularly effective. The depression saps your usual levels of effectiveness and confidence, producing this combination of feeling miserable and feeling as though you're sliding further behind every day. This is a very successfully treatable condition. Discuss this with your husband, and get the best available local treatment asap. And do keep in touch with the forum to keep us in the picture as you work your way out of this, and return to the effective and cheerful person you can be
