I'm a Mum to 5 and I have a mental health illness.
I take medications daily to help alleviate the symptoms of my illness.
I suffer Major Depressive Mood Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anxiety and possibly, Bi Polar.
Can a depressed parent be a good parent? YES!
Anyone else want to join the bandwagon, come say hello here
The more we can talk about this, the better informed society will be and more accepting of those with a mental health illness. We should not be left in the dark to suffer alone, with guilt and shame!
We have an illness just like cancer, diabetes, asthma etc etc. And we deserve the same respect and support
