My name is Christopher, I am married to an amazing woman, Priscylla and together we have three amazing boys, Matthew, Daniel and Giovanni. We live in sunny Florida, USA and this is our story. After Daniel was born in 2004, my wife got very ill with PP. I still remember like it was yesterday, I got home very late from work on a Friday only to see my wife hallucinating, singing in total panic holding baby Daniel in her arms! I was scared and did not know what to do, thoughts were racing thru my mind, had she gone mad, was this spiritual, had a lost my wife? I reached for my mobile and phoned a friend, a local pastor in our community. He came to my aide as quickly as he could, we talked, prayed and he left but I had no answers! That night was one of the most difficult nights of my life, I could not sleep at all because Priscylla could not sleep, her condition was quickly deteriorating. She wanted to leave the house, said she was dead and could smell the foul odors from her body, I had to block the door several times to keep her from leaving. The next morning I had to take her to get some medical help. On our way to our local Emergency Room, she tried to jump from the car several times but we finally made it. They ran some tests and gave her some shots, then some state employee wanted to interview her, alone, but why? She was in no condition to carry a normal conversation but they gave me no choice and I was escorted off the room. At the time it made no sense to me but now, years latter I realize that they wanted to talk to her alone to see if I was an abusive husband and the source of her troubles. After the interview they wanted to keep her for a few days but I refused, there was no way my wife was staying in that place, and I was prepared to fight if necessary. I told them we had plenty of help from both sides of the family and that Priscylla was going home. By that time my Mother had flown from out of town to watch the boys and that helped a lot, but I still had no answers, the experts kept saying, "this field of science is too new".
