Hi , I suffered from PPP and severe Depression and now have a Bipolar diagnosis. At the start of this year I had watched the painful but important documentary my baby psychosis and me and was struck by the similarities between my experience and a lady called Jenny who was featured. Four years on I am still in recovery but unable to fulfil my professional role to the standard that I used too and unable to manage stress. For the first time I am starting to acknowledge that I will never be able to return to my career or perform to the best of my abilities- it feels like another loss if my identity. I have accepted that it is too risky to have children; this seems like another blow. Does anyone else understand. I'm hoping to make contact with Jenny as I know she had to change her career and any others who can share their experiences.
Thank you for reading x
