    I wouldnt ever want Ds1 to know what I went through in his first year of life when I struggled with pnd. The things I said and thought about him and myself are terrible and I would never want him to find out. Im tearing up just thinking about what a horrible person I was Dont get me wrong I loved him to pieces and he was very much wanted but at that point I was in such a dark place it didnt matter how loved and wanted he was. So ashamed

    I've done some hideous things that I ashamed of but I don't want to hide them from DD. If an appropriate time arises and my experience can be used as a what not to do example, then I will share.

    Mm. No. I have a pretty colourful past, but all that has shaped who I am. I'm not ashamed of myself, I want to teach DD to not be ashamed of herself or her experiences because they'll shape the person she grows to be. If she doesn't like an experience she has, then I would like to teach her to learn from it and grow and move past it, rather than harbour feelings of guilt and shame about something that she now can't change.

    Back in my day, ABC played Alice Cooper on the kids cartoons and our cartoons could talk. Being a kid sucks now.

    Well yes my experiences have shaped who I am now and if I had a daughter or dil and she had pnd then I would share what I went through. But ds is only 2 so Its too fresh for me to feel like what I went through is nothing more than a shaping life experience. Its all way too raw for me at this point to not still feel a level of shame.

    The past is the past. There are things I've done that I will never admit to anyone - especially my children. Its not who I am now.

    I don't think there is anything I couldn't or wouldn't want to talk about. I guess my life is a bit dull compared to others.

    Please don't be ashamed. You couldn't help it. The main thing is you worked through it, and recognised it. X
