I'm a dad, I didn't know I could suffer from PND as well: BubHub
When David, 32, lost control in the dead of night after waking to his son’s screams, what he did next shocked him to the core...
I wasn’t expecting the struggle I’d face as a new dad. I thought I’d be able to cope with the sleep deprivation and resolve any issues that came up. But as I learned very quickly, being woken up 5 to 6 times a night by a screaming baby with reflux was something I just couldn’t fix.
Becoming a dad also meant less one-on-one with my partner, and I struggled with the fact that my time wasn’t my own any more.
