Having a bit of a raw day today. I spoke to my community mental health nurse and she asked me about my psychosis triggers. I said that it was the fact I had so little sleep around the birth and the fact that I found the birth so traumatic.
I started to recount the story of the birth and I found myself crying!! I thought I had gotten over it but obviously I still carry a lot of pain about it. She recommended psychotherapy which to be honest I feel is a step back as I already spoke to someone about the psychosis. I thought I was feeling back to normal! Although I don't know what normal is now I'm a mum!
Did anyone else struggle with accepting the labour as well as the psychosis?
