I keep seeing these threads started in other communities, and people jumping in immediately saying you have PPD, go get medicine, so i thought I'd go to the most natural people I know, and ask your opinion. I know PPD is a serious illness that affects many people, but how often are women just having bad days and getting shoved into taking serious prescription medication because of it? I kind of take issue with this, because we all know what it's like to have babies everywhere... it's CRAZY stressful! When did typical life stresses become somethign that needs to be medicated? What is the major difference between having a bad month, or a bad year, and having a mental illness? And why aren't doctors prescribing holistic remedies, and simple common sense to deal with these issues instead of prescribing unneeded medication to breast-feeding mothers? What is going on here???
