My therapist (yes, I have a therapist) tells me that PPD is a real illness, just like cancer - yet the stigma associated with a mental health disorder is much different than a physical illness that everyone can see.
If one is sick, then one needs to nurse oneself back to health - no matter it be mental or physical health.
Am I embarrassed by "airing my dirty laundry"? Yes and no.
However, if this blog can help other mom's with their PPD illness - then it is worth sharing my story on the world wide web.
