Hi my name is Ang. I am so excited to have stumbled upon this site. I just had my first gorgeous baby a few months ago and I ended up in a psychiatric hospital 3 weeks post birth. Didn't see it coming at all. I admitted myself with the help of my family because I was in a state of absolute terror. Was diagnosed with PP (which I'd never heard of) put on 20mgs of olanzipine and stayed in bed basically for two weeks then I got better one day and went home. I didn't have health cover so the experience cost me $12,000 of my $14,000 maternity payment from my work but the main thing was that I didn't kill myself which was all I could think of right before I got help. Now I am great, incredibly overweight but great otherwise. Can't wait to meet you all and talk about this I still haven't made sense of what I went through yet.
