Everything has seemed to go downhill lately. I don't know if I am makin the right decisions anymore or if anything is going to turn out right. The worst of it has come in the past fortnight. I took dd to get her tongue tie cut which seemed simple enough but since havin it done she has nearly screamed constantly I have had her checked and they say everything is fine but y happy baby has not been the same since and it is stressing me out to the max and it is know effecting my whole life it is making me question myself as a parent I do t feel like I can control anything anymore Abd it is stressing me out to the max I rang my partner today as he was out as he is most of the time and told him I don't know what to do to help her an I need his help as dd had been screaming and crying since 9am and it was now 3 pm but instead of him coming to help me he rang one of his friends parents and told them I can't cope anymore and could they come help me and I now I feel horrible as I feel like no one thinks that I can look after my own children I am at a loss I ant stop thinking I have failed this is y 4th child an I have never felt like this before I don't know what to do I am in need or any advice or even just another mother to talk to as I don't have any family near me at all

I have been checked for ppd and they said I am fine. I have been trying to get out and make some friends as my closest family member is 700km away but I can't seem to find genuine friends. My partners family are all here but they never help they couldn't even watch the children for us when we had number 4.

things will get better. Get help from family and friends and relax a bit. Don't be embarrassed just take some time to think. I stress about my decisions all the time. Give yourself two weeks and there will be something else consuming your mind.

It sounds like you could have a bit of PPD. Get yourself to the doctor and get assessed. There is help available but you need to make the first step. There is nothing to be embarrassed about, a lot of women suffer from it.
