I remember before I was pregnant hearing horror stories about postpartum. I always thought those woman were crazy, in all honesty. I didn't understand and really don't think you can unless you've had it. I had a friend whose husband would tell me about her hospital trips and he missed work often because she was "losing it."
After I had my daughter, I had some PP issues. I thought it was more of the fact that my daughter was just born after 12 weeks of wondering if my daughter would live and then dealing with her health issues after I had her. It was hard emotionally. I had two boys, a newborn with oxygen and at home nurses coming a few times a day. I was stressed beyond what I thought I could handle.
