I am a mother to a beautiful 22 month old daughter and am also 25 weeks pregnant with a son, which deep down I am happy about. I suffered PND when my daughter was about 7 months old and was put on Effexor and also advised to see a phycologist, who really helped alot. In about February this year I went off th medication as I found it was beginning to make me feel bad, as I have suffered depression for just over 8 years and have done it without medication for so long. Anyway I have found over the last 2 months my patience has become increasingly shorter and I have been unable to cope with small insignificant things that would normally not bother me at all. Now what I am wondering is whether it is still considered PND (as it could be linked to th 1st birth) or is it Pre Natal Depression or is it just normal and I'm over reacting? I would prefer to not go on medication again and would prefer to talk it out as it has always worked for me before. I will be grateful to anyone who can help me work out whether or not I should sek further medical help.
