Welcome to my blog, I’m Tony and I suffer from PND. Yes you read that right I am a male suffer of Postnatal Depression. It’s a condition that 1-10 of us dads get, yet whilst the NHS is getting better at helping women who suffer the condition is still not widely recognised in me. Most of the time it is not diagnosed with a lot of professionals still labelling us as jealous dads. If it’s not the lack of professional support it’s men being men, we don’t like to admit we have issues or are struggling. I plan on using this blog to tell you about my struggling in the hope more men will realise it’s ok not to be ok, seek help and demand change.
my first few blogs will be my story so far and then I will continue to blog each week about the life of a PND Daddy
