I've recently been diagnosed with symphysis pubis dysfunction and post natal depression and wondered if there is any other moms out there suffering with either of these or both at the same time!?! The pain is constant and just adds to the depression!!! I live in a small town and there's not much support available. The GP is going to start me on anti - depressants next week if there's no improvement. What are people's experiences of them? I'm worried about becoming dependent on them. Also stressing about having to go back to work soon and how I will cope with the chronic pain am in, which painkillers don't even touch and the depression on top!!! It would be nice to hear from anyone else who is in or has been in a similar situation.
