I know you say you don't think you need the counseller but please go. They can be a huge help even if it isn't to do with bereavement.
You are allowed to be upset about your recent MC, even if you had 10 kids already. It's a horrible thing to go through. You've done the right thing by going to your doctor and the counseller may really help as you can discuss through everything and it might help to talk to someone about it all.
i'm also on citalopram. what dosage are you on? It has helped me loads with my PND and really got me through the dark times as has talking to people about it. Do you go to a baby group or have you contacted your health visitor? Just talking to other mums I have found really helped me. There are loads of support groups too and even if yours is not directly PND it might help to look them up and see if someone is in a similar situation or any other advice you can get.
and of course you've got us. if you need to chat or vent at any time about anything, even if it seems completely random or irrational just talk to us or email me I don't mind. it really helps to just get it off your chest.
I hope you feel better soon xxxx
