Im the child of a pp mother. she was sectioned in 1980 when i was 4 after her third child. i am the eldest of the three so the one who felt the loss of my mother most. my middle sister and i were sent to live with my nan for 3 months so my dad could still work. my baby sister went with my mum. i am due to have my 3rd baby in 6 weeks and i am worried what happened to me might happen to my other children. my mother spent so much time (years) trying to "make it up" to my sister for rejecting her at birth that she forgot the pain and confusion me and my other sister went through. This distance and damage still re manes today 35 years later. i have never remembered being "mothered" in my childhood or beyond. this is something my mother is not willing to discuss or acknowledge.Other family members have often said how hard it was for her (i know i was there) when i try to discuss how me and my sister were affected. my nan was the only one who saw how upsetting it was for us but she died 10 years ago. I have realised at no one else is going to see it from my point of view so i have given up. Has anyone here been the child of a pp mother themselves? . and has or hasn't gone on to have the condition?.
