My takes depression medicine and even before I met her. We have two girls now oldest 3 and youngest 1. The first one was not so bad and the second girl has kinda been rough and now my wife has moved out and I am wondering if it is still post pardom. I tried to supportive and help out and would just get shut down. I would try to keep the romance going and I would get shutdown. I would try to say things to make her feel better and I would get shut down. She has left and says she wants space and I guess I am having a real hard time of doing that. I dont know how to help her and she wont tell how I can help either. can anyone help me figure it out.
When you say she "shut down" what did she say/do before shutting down? Can you give any specific fights or conflicts that you had? What were her primary complaints? Chores?
PPD is definitely very possible still 1-yr post partum if it isn't being treated. That being said having a 1 year old myself, its just stressful period, being a new parent. Did she leave you and the kids or just you? Is she currently on medication?
She just left me, most of the complaints are chores, me working out of town, the house, and me not giving support. I am pretty sure she is still taking meds. I just want to help and she thinks she has to do everything by herself
