On December 27, 2008 we welcomed Felix into the world. Within weeks after giving birth anxiety and postpartum depression set in. It controlled everything including my ability to be a good mom to my boys. Over the months a combination of improper medication and increase in the severity of my PPD symptoms drug me down deeper than I ever thought I could go until Nov. 2009 when I straight up went crazy.
This is my journey through madness. It was hard to write and even harder to push the button to post it. What I wrote is authentic and very few details are left out.
All I ask is that you read them in order and with an open mind and heart with the knowledge that this can happen to any women after birth. This could be your sister, your cousin or your best friend.
