Hi Emily. I think I did this. Having a baby that doesn’t want to sleep is hard, and I totally related to the frustration of that. I occasionally turned to wine and chocolate in the middle of some endless nights with the twins. Trying to avoid banging my head against the wall.

I have not suffered with depression, and on reflection, me saying ‘chin up girl’ could perhaps have felt to be inappropriate/insulting on so many levels – and I’m really sorry if it came across as trite in any way. I hope you find your way to get through. X
