Is it possible for someone to have postnatal depression 3 years after giving birth? All the symtoms are there, yet i feel stupid even contemplating a situation when it has been that long since giving birth. I never went to see about any problems, for an unknown reason that is always how i have been, a problem arises: i wait it out till it resolves itself. I just 'handed the reigns' over to my husband, whos bond with our son is brilliant so he never seen it as a problem or unusual. My moods are up and down all the time i never used to be a 'teary type' but it happened so often now for 3 years. I have tremendous days too, don't get me wrong, where my son does something and im proud, but i spend most my time anxious that something is going to harm him. It is driving my husband inane because he thinks i don't trust his ability to drive or 'lock up' the house. Or i'm basically not interested, no motivation there whatsoever, i just want to sit in silence, i have no patience and although i know shouting does not resolve any problem, i still do it. I can't keep up with myself, never mind expecting my husband to. But i can't visit the doctors, what if they confirm my worst fears that there is nothing at the root of the problem, i am just infact a bad mum
