I am a 32 year old Mum of One with another on the way. I have suffered issues with depression and anxiety for 17 plus years. Sometimes it has been controlled with medication, sometimes with counselling from professionals and other times self managed pretty well.
I am currently 26 weeks pregnant and had been managing my depression and anxiety for 2 years with minimal help and no medication, I was starting to feel really on top of things until the pregnancy hormones started kicking in.
It has really sucked, not only irrational moods (I suppose a quite normal part of pregnancy) but I am also suffering panic attacks, old fears are surfacing, I feel like I am losing the real me again. Luckily I have fantastic support through my husband, my church, great doctors and counselling. I won’t let this beat me but some days if is jolly hard. I encourage anyone experiencing depression and anxiety to seek help, you are not alone and seeking help is not a sign of weakness it is a sign of strength.
