I suffer from anxiety, disturbing thoughts, derealization, depersonlization, depression, and constant worrying. I avoid thinking or talking about about the experience at all costs, and I have a bunch of physical symptoms and insomnia.

Post partum depression is a condition that manifests itself in women following the birth of a child. The most notable symptoms experienced by sufferers of post partum depression include sleeping disturbances, recurrent sadness, loss of appetite, loss of energy, hopelessness, frustration, exhaustion, guilt, low self esteem, social withdrawal, and many other negative experiences.
Although much time and effort has been expended trying to unlock the secrets of this condition, no definitive single factor can be identified that in itself leads to post partum depression. Several issues have been singled out as important factors that contribute in part to the condition. These include prenatal depression, lack of self esteem, prenatal anxiety, and chronic conflict with a spouse.

My husband just retired from the US Army and was diagnosed with sever post traumatic stress disorder. A lot of our soldiers are coming home with this. His mood swings are really, really bad. We have been married for ten years and I love him with all my heart so I won’t leave him. I just need to know if anyone can give me some pointers on dealing with this or something that might have worked for them. It is not an easy thing to deal with.

I have read plenty about how to deal with post traumatic stress. But how about the people who live with these folks? I am so exhausted, so confused, my self esteem is zero living and trying to cope with this person.
Pls, can I hear from someone else tonite for some support or guidance on how to take all this? The silence, the emotional abandonment, the lonliness, the depression. I feel like I have no life anymore but taking care of him.

I am curious about the effects post traumatic stress syndrome and depression would have on raising kids/regular life/etc.? I know people like this and want to understand it better — like how PTSS and depression would make everyday life harder? What are your stories/experiences?
