  • It can happen! I'm doing the math......I got it about 5 months after as well. It was tough and I look back at it now, and just can't believe I was like that. If you are experiencing what you think may ppd please go talk to your dr or a pyschologist. I had a great psychologist that really helped me find my way back. Hang in there and stay strong.
