What an absolutely accurate depiction of postpartum psychosis. Your story is unbelievably written, and wow, the movie!
So glad you found your “spark of hope.” I found mine, too, and maybe one day I can write and share my story.

Aw thanks for your comments Robin, I hope one day you’ll share your story too if you want to. It took many years before I understood enough about mine & had come to terms with it enough to share it, I found it pretty therapeutic when I did though 🙂

This is amazing, such a beautiful eloquent piece of art, I can only hope that someday I can share my pp story in such a way.

Thank you for your comments yellowbearwares. I found telling my story in my own way helped me understand & come to terms with all I’d been through, I had to wait until the time was right & I felt recovered enough though – I was certainly in no rush. It’s amazing reading other peoples’ experiences & realising how strong PP mums really are – I look forward to reading your story one day x

Wow your video is so beautiful and sad. It is what I went through. The darkest period of my life. I’m so glad I found your blog 🙂
