Hello

Hello, I have just found this site after seeing a poster in my psychiatrist waiting room. I am recovering (maybe recovered- discharged from psychiatrist today!) from post parting depression with psychosis. I had 6 weeks in a psychiatric ward when my daughter was 9 months. I nearly lost my job (doctor), daughter, and have split up from my husband but am feeling very positive about the future. I am soon returning to work, have a gorgeous 3 year old and am looking forward to my life ahead so just want to say to anyone suffering there is light at the end of the tunnel.x

Hello! I would love to chat as well on a one to one if possible. I am also a doctor recovering from post partum psychosis with depression. Would love to hear a little more about your journey. I am still very much in the recovery phase!

I know the feeling. The psychosis has gone but the depression I’m feeling is hard to shift. Krodwell, please can you share tips? I think a lot of people would like to hear them xxx

Counselling, a book called ‘reasons to stay alive’ by Matt haig, most of all time is healing. Be kind to yourself- find things you enjoy if you can, for me it’s music and craft. Remember you will get through it, is just an illness, others have. Hope that helps.x
