I shall be buying Karen Littlewood’s book,she is very brave baring all like this.
When you have a mental health issue people give you a wide berth as some people dont know how to handle it. It’s not their fault, but I think we can all be guilty of this.
When I had my son eight years ago I suffered from shocking post-natal depression and to me who had never had any thing like this before it was so frightening.
I felt like I had been taken over by someone I didn’t know.
It was a very scary and upsetting time. I got better, but not overnight, it took about four years before I felt that I was heading in the right direction.
I would say, if you know someone who’s having these issues, a few words of encouragement can make a lot of difference.
No-one should suffer in silence.
