At risk

I've talk about this before and to warn you, I am probably going to continue to talk about this as this pregnancy goes on. But the fact of the matter is that I am at a higher risk of having postnatal depression because I was lucky enough to suffer from it in the past.

I have been speaking to my GP about the risks and also B and I have talked about it too. It's not something we are shying away from and I am certainly not embarrassed by these facts. Some people have been shocked when I do openly talk about my PND, but they need to realise that it's not something that I am or should be ashamed about.

It is just a part of my past but it could also be a part of my future. It's something I need to be aware of and something that I am not afraid to talk about openly. No one should be afraid to talk about their issues with depression. And people that do think that people should be ashamed to talk about it, well they should be ashamed of themselves.
