    DH is home late because someone believed that running on the train tracks was a better option. God bless everyone who is feeling this way, I don't understand, but I don't feel smug because I don't. Please get help if you are having trouble, and don't believe any of the "they wont act if you tell someone anyway". Lifeline is always there.

    I feel this way too.

    Those who judge, I know it is hard when kids are involved but I really hope that you never suffer from mental illness. There are so many of us that have shared about it, do you not believe the stories..? Or what?

    I agree with this post.
    Although I am not condoning what this woman did. As it breaks my heart what happened to those children, but from someone who has openly admitted to their GP that they hated their child and couldn't be near them. It is a very hard step to seek help, I thought I was being obvious to people that I needed help, but no one had a clue until I went to counselling.

    I just don't understand it nor can I comprehend how people can feel so unhappy and get into a depressive state. And why do many not seek help? Surely if you are feeling down go to a dr, talk to trusted loved ones and seek assistance.

    Because its an illness. And a part if that is not realising its a serious problem.

    The first time i had PND everyone kept telling me i needed help. But i felt like everyone just hated me and wanted to hurt me by saying that. I felt like what was happening was normal and justified. It was a nightmare

    Because it is that very depressive state that changes everything. Confusion. Your whole outlook, the way the world feels, looks...add guilt and shame on top of that along with societal pressure to be a perfect parent. It can feel like the world is against you in a very real way.

    There doesn't even have to be anything in your life making you 'sad.' It's an illness. I have a pretty awesome life. Easy children, supportive hubby, great jobs, I have nice clothes, look nice and fit and completely normal etc but I struggle daily with my mental state and it's manifestations.

    Those who have never experienced it are very lucky, I would not wish mental illness on my worst enemy.

    Being mentally well means you that have insight, without insight you have a mental illness, you are unable to decipher what it is you need to do, you may not realise how bad it is or you may feel so hopeless that you are incapable of reaching out to anyone. It is a chemical imbalance in the brain which cannot be reasoned with.
