I mean, women had to do farmwork, take care of the house, take care of MULTIPLE children, and work in the fields. They didn't have TIME to be depressed and just have "me time". I see so many women complaining about how depressed and overwhelmed they are after having a baby, and everyone tells them " YOU HAVE PPD!!! GO TO THE DOCTOR!" What did these women do before Prozac?

I think just because they didn't have Prozac back then doesn't mean that women didn't go through depression and I think it is immature to think like that, it is like saying the same thing about a tooth ache, or something what did these people do before pain pills. Just because the meds were not there doesn't mean things like that didn't happen.

They also gave lobotomies and locked women up. You could not stop crying you went away and recieved electric shock until you could behave the way society expected. Electric shock was a big treatment for depression back then.
