I just finished teresa twomey's book understanding postpartum psychosis: a temporary madness. I finished it in two days! Its a book about facts of PPP and about 15 stories of recovry of PPP. I skipped the stories of suicide and infanticide. I don't feel like I am in a good place to read them right now. I really recomend her book however it has stirred up a lot of memories and emotions. I feel like Im in a place today where I really fear relapse. It has only been since April of this year where I had my episode. (no previous mental illness before birth). I wondered if it is more healing or hard to hear others stories of PPP for other PPP survivors. Or maybe it is hard to hear at first then after processing it becomes more healing.
