I hope you were able to get in to see the GP. Can you get in to see a grief counselor? Hospitals often have them available for free here. Please be good to yourself.

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

You're in my prayers. Please be well.

Doctors aren't out to kill you or your children. Childbirth isn't inherently safe. Science is actually smarter than your intuition. Lighten up. Use sunscreen.

I am so sorry for your loss- there are not words.

I'm a psychologist (Psy.D) in the states, and I just wanted to mention (I think a pp did as well) that a psycholgist with either a Psy.D or a Ph.D can diagnose bipolar (or any other mental illness) and also be involved in the (non-medicinal) treatment aspects, like therapy.

As terrifying as it is, PLEASE do whatever it takes to get some medical or mental health professional involved. Go to the emergency room-- ask your husband or a friend to give you a "dealline" of finding a doctor and then take you to one or start making calls for you. NONE of this is your fault, and you deserve treatment and to feel better. Please take care of yourself and surround yourself with others who can help.

Just letting you know you are in my thoughts.
