I have a eight week old son and a twelve year old. I have had the baby blues but still seem to get upset with myself and about others. I am not very good at asking for help and some times think this maybe the problem. But around the same time every day I seem to hit a brick wa. Can anyone give me some advice please

Thanks for your reply I am at doctors today so going to mention it. I think I am scared they will say its depression as I don't want to take anything. I think sometimes I am like a lot of women I think I am quite hard on myself. Hope you are well.

Having a newborn is overwhelming. You could be having anxiety issues as well, I know my anxiety first started after having children. If you feel that is getting out of control I would talk to someone. I recommend seeing a psychiatrist for evaluation to see if you need medication. I haven't had good luck with my primary on stuff like that, they chalked all mine up to depression which wasn't the case and the medications they prescribed made me worse.
