I've been on the forum for a while now and I'm so inspired by each and every story I read. I truly am not alone in this unknown illness. My question or concern is has anyone felt like they are not the same person? I find that I'm not as mentally sharp as I use to be, I stumble with my words. I had postpartum psychosis with both my daughters the first was in 2008 where I spent 2 weeks in the mental hospital, and the second time was 2012 where I spent about 3 months in the hospital. I live in the US and I don't think we have mother baby units how some of you guys from the UK talk about. Both times I took a lot of medicine. Thank God that I only take one antidepressant now. I have no previous history of mental illness. I know I came out of this a stronger person, but sometimes according to society I feel weak or inferior because I had ppp. Not to mention my confidence and self esteem is very low. Its been 3yrs for me will I ever feel like my old self again or should I just come to the conclusion that this has kind of left me mentally handicapped. Any advice is greatly appreciated. And thank you in advance.
