Post Partum Depression?

Have you suffered or are you suffering from Post Partum Depression?

I just wanted to offer to be here for anyone who is going through this. I grew up in a house where I was taught that Depression was in your head and not something real. It caused me a lot of issues. I have suffered from Depression for years and after each baby PPD takes over for a while. Luckily I have learned some great things to help with Depression and PPD. I would love to share that with any of you who need a friend or anyone to understand.

Some of the best treatments are....first to realize it is real and get treatment. Medicine can be a life saver. There are also breathing techniques and writing techniques that I have been taught that help tremendously.

Please don't feel like you are alone or that something is wrong with you. It is okay. :-)
