I also had experienced the post depresson after having my 2nd child. I always described myself to friends and family that I was always in a fog. I was always overwelmed with life. I had no help. My mother would always tell me " I told you not to have your children so close together (2years 5 months apart)" not relizing how deep in depression I was. She had chosen not to help me and I guess it was my lesson to learn of how hard 2 kids so close in age were to handle. My husband was never home and seemed to work alot. I thought that I would never make it through life. I have now had about 8 months of clearity. I see things better now and relize that I have made it through the hardest time and now I can enjoy my kids. The hard part is that I feel like I owe them so much for all the hard times I put them through because of my misery. Postpardum depression is worse than giving birth and wish that no one else would have to go through it. This book made me relize what was wrong with me. When I hear that Brooke felt that like she was in a fog well that is exactly how I have described myself for the last couple of years. I am happy to know that now I can get on with my life.
