Our expert says:
Its usual that even folks who are well able to advise and help others, may themselves have problems they find hard to deal with --- it may not be easy to take our own advice ! And what you describe as your reaction to having a child with Down's Syndrome is also normal ---you may feel guilty ( though there was absolutely nothing you did which caused this to happen, and nothing you could have done to prevent it from happening ). And we all ask "why me?" after such a sad event. That's human. not selfish. Depression could well be a significant part of the problem, so do see a good local shrink for assessment and treatment advice, probably including medication and counselling. I doubt that the hormones themselves are the problem
