@project1in4 you nailed this. With my personal experience of PND, this is how it felt. There was a box between me and the outside world, where I felt it was getting smaller and smaller and I couldn't communicate with the people that I loved. Towards the pointy end of the illness, my brain fog was so bad, that I couldn't remember how to count the baby formula. I couldn't even remember how to boil sweet potatoes 😫!! I also couldn't pack my bag for hospital, my beautiful mother in law had to do this. How is this even possible some people ask? It comes down to the wiring of our brains being off kilter or our naughty neurochemicals being out of alignment. And for some of us, our hippocampus (memory centre) shuts down! It's so important that for people experiencing depression that you have an incredible support team around you. They know the signs, they know what to say, and most importantly they know what to do. If you feel yourself slipping, make sure to speak up ASAP. We need to get you to the right places and a good plan to keep you well and safe. I am proud to be an ambassador for @ruokday, brainwave and soon to be working very closely with @gidgetfoundation.
