 i had ppd after my first child and it was so rough. back then they didnt recognize ppd like they do now so i had to go unmedicated. i was psychotic. it took me about six months to get over. it was so awful. i surprised i survived it.

Working, leaving her for the hours I have to work, dh working a lot of hours lately. Don't get me wrong I love my daughter but she is sick and needs a lot of care. After I had her I lost so many of my friends. But I have mixed emotions with dealing with her as I'm happy she's here I'm morning the loss of her twin.

I had it bad after both my kids were born and was hospitalized for a month each time, it was horrible.  The second time for me was worse bc I attempted suicide and then the doctors at the hospital pressured me into having shock treatments which only made things worse not better.  If you need someone to talk to who understands please feel free to pm me.
