Postpartum Depression

and the question of Mental Illness vs. Physical Illness 

I’m a firm believer that a sickness of the mind should be treated just like a sickness of the body. For far too many years mental illness has been written off as ‘all in your head’ or ‘crazy’ or something you’re just making up. Mental illness is a real, debilitating problem. No different than a broken leg or a cancer in the body. Postpartum depression is a special sort of hell that comes when you should be experiencing some of your greatest joys. Instead, too many women fall into their deepest sorrow. It’s heartbreaking, and it’s a conversation worth changing
