Now I know I’m not alone
I am a father of a three-month-old baby girl. I am absolutely overjoyed about having her in my life but there are times when I pine for my earlier life and wonder if it was even right to feel that way.
But when I read your article on how new fathers could go through depression, I found consolation in the fact that I was not the only one (‘Dad’s depression’, June 14).
Like the article said, it is usually the women who are the main focus when it comes to analysing postnatal depression, not the men. So in many ways the article exposed the stereotype and came up with great suggestions on how they can deal with it and overcome the problem.
Thank you Friday for such great articles that give a new perspective to our approach.
