    Dealing with postpartum depression

    Life during and after PPD

     

    I had PPD after all my children's births, but i was only diagnosed after my third child.  I went through depression, suicidal thoughts, and some symptoms of postpartum psychosis.  Eventually through therapy and the support of many people, I found there was life after PPD.  I also wanted to share my story because depression is not a topic commonly discussed in the Asian community, but I hope that it can be talked about more and more.
