My story

[p]Update: Thank you for all the support! I completed my challenge to run 100 miles in June.[/p][p]Now I’m passing the baton to Laura Dockrill who will be running 100miles in July. Laura suffered from postpartum psychosis after the birth of her son Jet. She has written a wonderfully powerful memoir called ‘what have I done?’ all about this horrible illness.[/p][p]My story: Arthur Jude Watt was born on the 21st October 2018 and not long after, I developed chronic insomnia with racing thoughts and struggled to function - fast forward 3 months and endless suicidal thoughts and I was admitted into hospital into a specialist mother and baby unit, designed to care for women suffering from severe post natal mental health. I was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression and spent 6 months on the unit receiving care from a wonderful team of consultants, doctors, mental health nurses and support workers. I was taking a cocktail of medication and also ended up having 10 sessions of ECT which is an invasive treatment to treat severe episodes of depression. I’m still having support from my wonderful consultant as I haven’t fully recovered, ( it’s going to take me some time to make a full recovery and heal my mind) This journey has been heartbreaking but I am determined to come out of this illness braver and stronger than ever before. I couldn’t have made it through the last 19 months without my incredible husband, family and wonderful friends and the amazing support of the NHS. I want to share my story and hope to support other women who suffer from this cruel illness. Love Always Em x [/p]
