One week after having my son in January 2014, I started feeling off and not like myself. I had shortness of breath and I was extremely anxious about something and couldn't pin point what. Little did I know, I was heading down the road of perinatal mood disorder / PPD. I can't even begin to go over what I went through and here I am 14 months later, and can finally say I am well on the road to recovery. Being a mom of 2 I know what it's like to have a baby and not have PPD - PPD takes away the joy and happiness in motherhood, no one should have to go through that.
I want to tell my story to help raise awareness, I think if mothers and medical professionals were more aware of this illness, it could help many out there who are afraid to get help. Fortunately, I seeked help and wanted to get better, which is why I am here today and have the luxury of being a great mother to my two beautiful children.
