Suggest treatment for stress and depression

i had my daughter just over a year ago and since she has been born i have felt like me and my partner are not a couple anymore. he is working 2 jobs trying to get more money in so we hardly ever see each other, and when we do we seem to be very short with each other. i know its due to lack of sleep etc but my worst feeling is towards his other daughter (13yr old). he promised me that the weekend after our daughter was born we wouldnt have her over but she was. i had a bad labour and ended up with a emergency c section. the day after she was born she came to the hospital and she messed around on the ward which annoyed myself and others. once home she kept trying to tell me how to look after my daughter and i cant even stand her being near my baby. as you can imagine it is causing a lot of problems between me and my partner but i cannont stop the feeling.im not sure what to do and if it is postnatal depression. my partner has told me to grow up or leave so im really upset and i feel alone. please could you help

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. I can understand the stress and emotional conflict you are in. Your husband should have supported you at this juncture. But you should also understand that he also loves his daughter. He wants you to be her mother too. I think you should accept that. You can give her love and affection. It might take some time, but she will respect you. Don't have any presumptions about that 13 year old. She is also a kid and when you have such an ego as an elder person, how a 13 year old will not have? just understand.

Psychotherapy techniques should suit your requirement. If you require more of my help in this aspect, Please post a direct question to me in this URL. http://goo.gl/aYW2pR. Make sure that you include every minute details possible. I shall prescribe the needed psychotherapy techniques.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
