I have postpartum depression. I didn't even know this was possible after a miscarriage. I feel so sad and hurt and guilty all the time. Seeing pregnant women upsets me then I feel guilty. Each day I wake up is worse than the last. I dread everything. All I want to do is sleep

It is an extremely difficult time in your life. You are going through all the stages of grief and that is ok. You are allowed to be sad and hurt because you have lost something so precious. Try not to feel guilty about seeing pregnant women as at the moment they are an upsetting reminder of what you have lost. Miscarriage can feel like a very lonely grief to deal with, because people hadn't seen the little one they dismiss it as it is natures way. This is not very helpful in terms of helping you deal with the situation. You feel you are the only one who bonded with your baby so will be the only one who misses the person who never was. You feel guilty because you wonder if you did something wrong. This is very rarely the case.
If you need to talk, I understand where you are coming from. I lost a baby at 12 weeks and it is completely heartbreaking. Things do get easier and time is a great healer. Take care x

I'm so sorry. I'm here if you need someone to talk too.
