My partner doesnt understand
I am only 20years old and had a beautiful daughter 12month ago, after a couple of months i knew something wasnt right, i couldnt get out of bed in the mornin(literally) which wasnt like me before. I always felt miserable and many other symptoms of depression, it was only a couple of months ago i was actually diagnosed with postnatal depression, my partner doesnt understand that its an illness, he thinks you can get better over night, the fact he doesnt understand makes this illness alot harder to deal with as i dont have his support. He thinks im lazy and just shrug all responsibilty off to him, I often ask him if this is what he thinks i wanted. I hardly ever eat and sleep way too much, and im frightened of being left alone with my daughter incase she gets hurt. How do i get him to understand how hard this is for me to deal with? i havent got the bond with my baby that he has due to my depression which he also just doesnt understand.
