I had PPP in 1990 after the birth of my son. I was lucky to have had a MBU on my doorstep in Winwick Hospital, near Warrington, Cheshire. The site where Winwick Hospital once stood is now a housing estate. I think the nearest MBU is in Manchester. I cannot imagine what it is like for women with PPP to have to go to a hospital many miles from their home and family, who they need for support through this terrible illness.
I was left with Bi-Polar Disorder after the PPP, which is managed through medication prescribed by my G.P. Who was fantastic at explaining the illness to me, as I thought I had brought it upon myself. I am 66 now and retired, enjoying life, going walking with my husband and our beautiful Chocolate Labrador, Benny.
My thoughts go out to all who suffer from PPP and Bi-Polar Disorder.
