PPD sufferers living alone

Postby stevieb55 » Thu Jan 12, 2012 9:09 pm


I'm a new member to this forum and I have a specific question. My wife suffers from PPD and although there have certainly been difficulties in our 23 years of marriage, I do still love her. Sometimes, when she threatens to leave me over something she thinks I have done, I imagine what it could be like for her living on her own. At least now she has some sort of outlet for her problem, i.e. me. Would it be worse for her, i.e. delusions and paranoia about strangers ? Does anyone have any experience of this situation ? Thanks.

I think it would be worst, yes.
Because having no other point of view you can trust can make things degenerate.

There is lot of anecdotal evidence that I heard of people becoming paranoid when put in those places for old people, for example. That is because they end up surrounded by people that they do not trust, so there is no way to feel safe.
It is better to be the widow of a hero than the wife of a coward.
