Me and my husband had a lovely little life and when my first was born we thought it was the best thing, then post natal depression set in and i was on my own my hubby went back to work and i was left with her. it was so hard to keep going everyday when all i wanted to do was curl up in a ball and pretend it wasnt happening. after 10 months of medication i finally started to live my life again and everything started getting back into place. then on 16th may 2010 my husband was out in afghanistan, stood on a IED an was injured horrifically. i had to leave my little girl of 18 months with my mum and mive into accomadation to look after my husband. I was in a bubble down there the rest of the world didnt exsist it was just me and him and we were going to get through it. then we came home, my life as a 22 year old dissapeared overnight i was back to being a full time mummy and a full time carer for my husband. it was really hard work but i didnt want help i wanted to do everything for my family. that is when i hit rock bottom i couldnt do everything i did need help but i wouldnt admit it. i was ashamed that i ciuldnt cope yet my husband was the one who went through it all i put off seeking advice for months and in the end i had to i had no choice my family was suffering because i couldnt do my job properly. its been just over two years now and at 24 i have 2 gorgeous girls and a amazing husband. time does heal and thats what i had to learn. i felt i had to share this as when ur at rock bottom there is no way up, your drowning and theres no life saver. but there is and with the right help and support yiu can do anything xx
