I can’t believe it is happening to me. I have been pregnant six times and gave birth five times. And this last pregnancy was extremely upsetting or confusing perhaps. I do not know. Until now, I am still confused or so I would like to think.
I asked a friend if postpartum depression is real. She answered abruptly, “Yes. Sadly it is real.”
Am I experiencing one? I checked on the symptoms. I think I belong to the 10 percent new mothers suffering from postpartum depression. Though experts believe the number is even higher because many moms don’t seek treatment and do not even know they are suffering from one.
