It's been nearly 5 months since being diagnosed with pp. I was on an extreme high after taking my daughter home. I felt invincible and jumped out of my third storey window a week after the birth. Luckily I left my daughter in her Moses basket. My husband and mother were there at the time but couldn't stop me. I broke my spine and pelvis from the fall. My storey is quite extreme and the pp was very acute. I spent a week in a psychiatric ward then 10 days in a mbu which I now think wasn't enough time but I was adamant on getting home. I now have quite severe anxiety and find basic living and functioning difficult. I go between feeling anxious and depressed. I am on olanzapine and clonazepam for anxiety but I don't feel like they do much. The olanzapine makes me feel like a zombie.
I'm glad this network is here so I can tell my story. It has been the hardest time of my life and I just want to feel normal again.
