Yes. When I had my third and last child I got very depressed. 2 months after he was born I had my first break down and hospital admission. The first of many. My son is now 34 and i'm still fighting it except they decided I'm actually bipolar. I ended up leaving my husband and leaving my 3 kids for him to raise, cuz I felt like I was an unfit parent. I was in the hospital more than I was out at that time. Fortunately with A LOT of therapy and a lot trial-and-error with meds,I'm now home a lot more than before. Last admission was last month. But I see a light at the end of the tunnel these days and I hope you will too. I wish you all the best.
