I'm so glad I've found this forum. Unfortunately I didn't know any of this existed when I was really unwell.
Fortunately I was well looked after in a MBU in Bournemouth but have never met anyone with PPP or who has had it. I'm now training to become a mental health peer support worker to be able to give something back and help others.
It's incredible seeing all the love and support on here.
Something that massively helped me was being taught by the occupational therapist Emma how to make a blanket out of my little girls clothes. In hospital I did it all by hand but have since brought a sewing machine and continue to make blankets. I make them for anyone, whether for children that are health or sick and also for adults who have lost love ones and want to feel close to the person they've lost.
Let me know what you think.
Love and best wishes to you all. You're all so strong. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
