Post partum psychosis

Hi all, don’t know if you saw this today on Adele’s instagram, but for those who have been through it, or know someone who has, or even for those who want to know more, please have a read. It’s one of the most important things you will read today. https://motherofalllists.com/2018/08/13/postpartum-psychosis/

I had this. And it was the scariest time of my life and you can’t really put into words your thoughts and what you are feeling. I’m still attending therapy too. But know that you’re not the only one that has gone through this(once you come out on the other side and except that you’ve gone through this.❤️)

This really hits home for me. I didn’t leave our home for 6 months because I was so paranoid. I had these “black hole” pupils and didn’t recognize myself. I wouldn’t let my own husband hold our baby sometimes. I even called an ambulance and said goodbye to my husband and baby because I was convince my panic attack would kill me. One year later and I am better but still recovering. Would love to chat with other local moms who had experiences like this. We are not alone in this and post partum psychosis is not normal and it’s not just our hormones!

I had it with my first born (6.5 year old) and now I have ppd after having my 3 month old. I am having a lot of marital problems that have almost caused me to have that again. I am here taking care of my 4 children basically 24/7 by myself. I have been praying that I don’t get any worse and it actually improve. Prayer helps a lot and so does listening to praise music.

This was my worst fear when I got pregnant. I have a family history of bipolar disorder so I had a 40% higher chance of post patten psychosis. It did not help my fear that I was going through a divorce while pregnant from an abusive man. Anyways, I am happy to say I did not end up battling this, but very happy to see it being talked about.
