Here are some choice excerpts but I recommend reading the whole piece:
- I had everything I needed to be happy. And yet, for much of the last year, I felt unhappy. What basically everyone around me—but me—knew up until December was this: I have postpartum depression. How can I feel this way when everything is so great?
- I blamed whatever stress or detachment or sadness I was feeling at that time on the fact that there were so many odd circumstances.
- I couldn’t figure out why I was so unhappy. I blamed it on being tired and possibly growing out of the role: “Maybe I’m just not a goofy person anymore. Maybe I’m just supposed to be a mom.”
- Before this, I had never, ever—in my whole entire life—had one person say to me: “I have postpartum depression.”
good vibes to her, and all of you on ONTD who suffer from mental illness
