About Us

MMMM EHHHH What do I say here;

Well I am Babs Dorney*, primarily I am mammy to four amazing monsters, (from 13 to 1), and wife to an understand husband. Also a food giver to two dogs and four fish.

So i am newish to the blogging scene, Dublin Born, Kildare resident (blame the boom on that one). 34 years old and i still think i am only 25, but in a body of a 94 year old.

I suffer from  no I have oh i never know how to describe it… what the clinical psychological nurse (i call her my mental nurse) says I am severely depressed and have major anxiety issues.
My post-natal depression was identified in 2013, almost 18 months since I had my second child. It was during the pregnancy of my third child, that I was diagnosed with Anxiety. However, I feel that I have these both for the majority of my life. Nevertheless, with most things in Irish families, I done the swept under the carpet approach and I never ever spoke about my feelings.
The Depressed Housewife (I’m Depressed Not Desperate) Blog covers a whole range of anxiety and depression issues & a good few parenting topics. Where I have received a sample to review this will be noted on the post. My views will be in no way influenced whether I purchased it myself or received a trade sample. Please keep in touch, love hearing your views and comments.

*Only call me Barbara if i have done something wrong or you are my mother I Am Babs to all my friends.

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven’t yet met.
