Postpartum Psychosis plummeted me into a darkness that had me seeing demons flying around my home threatening to kill my baby. It quickly developed into me living with what I came to call my “dark stranger” who would follow me around the house, filling what should have been precious moments with my daughter with debilitating fear.
