It is always a pleasure to hear that someone has benefited from reading my book.
Recently I received this message, which I have permission to share, as it is another example of recovery after puerperal psychosis.
I'm so pleased I found your website on a post natal depression website!
I read your book last year whilst recovering from puerperal psychosis and found it very reassuring and helpful. I was diagnosed with the illness when my son was three months old. I was very lucky that no harm came to me or my son, but my recovery has taken me nearly two years. I have just this month come off anti-psychotic medication and feel like the old me. (I never thought I would ever again.)I am still taking anti depressants as following the psychosis I slipped into a deep depression. I would love to tell you my story, I experienced some very strange things while psychotic as everyone does with the illness.
My son will be 2 in July and I feel like I can finally enjoy him now.
Brilliant! I shall pass on her full story at a later stage.
Thank you Sukina for allowing me to share this inspiring message - the only way is up!
