  • I wish my partner could have been understanding. He became abusive unfaithful and blamed me for being depressed making it worse. I understand its a hard situation to be a man and not be able to do anything to make her all better. Just being there and letting her go through the process and be supportive is SO important.

  • My mother had mild post partum depression but she never really got help for it and already she had mental health do to past abuse that she suffered like anxiety and ciggeret smoking addiction but it got worse over time and got together with the wrong people so ended up raising us really bad like abuse and neglect and stuff but not all people with mental disorders will abuse people just there risk that if they do have untreated mental health problems it makes it more likely that they will

  • Im having so much trouble with my wife having ppd. Especially i am not with them due to coronavirus. Im stuck here abroad and away from them, i am really out of options how i can let her calm and not affect our child during this troubled time for her. I wanted to talk to her but she keeps on telling me that i cant do anything since im not with them, i really don’t know what to do. ��

  • I realise that depression today becz my husband ignore me while taking important decision in our life.he thought no need of my presense.and he don’t want to be with me.really don’t care abt me

  • I am certain I was left with un-diagnosed PP depression when i was a teen mom. It lasted for years because of the EX husbands toxic family inability to recognize what was happening and made the situation worse from Extreme lack of support. In the end after 4 years of trying (and failing) to be a mother, I lost my son in divorce from the abusive ex, because the EX fam was able to support him where mine was not able too. Even though i have 30% custody rights, because of the lack of care for myself and my son due to PP Depression, they continue to this day deny my rights of seeing him. PP depression can be disastrous if left untreated.

  • My wife and I are going through this right now. I’m not the type to go cheating or anything. I am just concerned about certain things. I have no clue what I am doing and I started to go about this as the “knight” but I quickly noticed that did not work. It is a complicated time for both of us. She’s going through PPD and I’m scrambling to each end of the world due to my business expanding which is taking me to other new things I’ve never dealt with being a smaller company. Which makes things hard because I tell my wife everything and now I have nobody to talk to that will share that emotion of success. I know, this will pass. It’s new and definitely scary. Thank you for the video, I will try your advice!!

  • This is just superb, I been tryin to find out about “home treatment for mild depression” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Hanincoln Nanlivia Framework (do a search on google )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cousin got cool results with it.

  • I love TED talks. This is a really serious subject and it’s great that she’s speaking out and bringing awareness but…when white women talk like this I just can’t listen ����‍♀️

  • My son is 7 months old and I’ve been battling this for a long time now. I feel sick at the thought of telling someone, I don’t even know how to make the words come out of my mouth. I need help and I don’t know how to get it

  • I need advice. I am a realtor and a dear client of mine has just reached out to me and I am struggling on how to continue the conversation. I will call her Chris and her husband Sam for privacy reasons. Chris and Sam just went under contract on a new home and the next day Chris called me in response to a message I left for her asking if she was okay, I had noticed she was different when we all met with the builder, Chris seemed really sad and extremely quiet. Chris and Sam have a 4 year old and an 8 month old baby. Since I have a history with these clients having sold their previous home a year ago, I feel Chris is different now. Chris revealed to me in our telephone conversation that I was correct in that something was wrong, she claimed she is very confused and is having marriage problems. This is not really so uncommon however these signals did not reveal themselves last year, before the second baby was born. I am curious if she is suffering from PPD?? I am touched that Chris has untrusted in me and feel she may be, reaching out? I do not think this a typical buyers remorse scenario and want to follow my instincts regarding PPD. I invited her for coffee in the next few days to discuss and just listen to her needs. I would love to know what questions to ask her and tips on how to not offend her. Can you help?
