Feeling fed-up, down or sad?

It is normal to feel down occasionally, but when does this become a problem?

      Hello Zoe, Sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time. Feeling sad can be common after having a baby. It might be a good idea to check with your doctor or discuss this with your health visitor for support.

      Sorry to hear that you are having a difficult time. I would consider letting your GP know in case there is something underlying. Try to share any concern with loved ones or a close family friend as well.

      Hi Louise I'm sorry to hear that you have come back down to earth with a bump after your holiday. It is not uncommon for the day to day routine to seem a bit empty after a lovely time away. Sometimes we can need different things from a break as well. If working life is very busy, one person may need a rest while the other wants to make the most of getting out and about and seeing different sites. In my experience, the key is to discuss needs with our nearest and dearest, and either find ways to compromise where we have differences or be willing to meet our own needs by choosing to go out with a friend if our partner wants to stay at home and rest.
